Portrait of Mrs. Francis Stanton Blake (Eugenia White Blake)1908
One American expatriate has painted another. Stewart was the son of the noted collector William H. Stewart, an expatriate from Philadelphia who resided in Paris. He studied with the artists his father had come to know Jean-Léon Gérôme, Eduardo Zamacoïs, and Raimundo de Madrazo, becoming a fashionable, cosmopolitan portrait and genre painter. Stewart has posed Mrs. Blake, an American who lived in Menton on the French Riviera, against a Japanese screen.
