THE JEAN AND GRAHAM DEVOE WILLIFORD CHARITABLE TRUST
This lot retains its original frame.
Among the first generation of American painters to live and work in Giverny, France, during the 1890s, Uruguay-born Mariquita Gill applied the light and coloristic concerns of Impressionism to views of the Seine Valley, depicting grain stacks and poplar trees, as well as the lush flowers growing in her garden. Upon relinquishing her expatriate lifestyle, Gill returned to the United States, where she was associated with the artistic life of Massachusetts. Gill settled in Scituate, Massachusetts, in a house near the ocean. Responding to her immediate environment, Gill painted coastal scenes such as this one, especially during the winter, as well as views of local apple orchards. Throughout her artistic life she had many important influences and artist-friends, many of whom are also represented in the Williford collection. An early teacher in Boston, for example, was watercolorist Ross Turner. In Paris Gill lived in an apartment on the Faubourg St. Honoré where the painter Henry Bacon maintained a studio.
