His subject matter was almost exclusively women, so far as I can tell. If he depicted men, that would have been while a student or if he ever painted portraits early in his career to earn some money. A chalk drawing of the poet Walt Whitman is in the Smithsonian collection.
Today's post presents some of Dewing's outdoor scenes populated, as usual, by attractive, aristocratic-looking women.
Images are in approximate chronological order. Seen on the Internet, at times there are color and sharpness variations of the same painting, so view my selection with the proverbial grain of salt.
