Child With Red Hair Reading. Lilla Cabot Perry (American, 1848-1933). Oil on canvas.

Although she had no formal art training until age 36, Perry became a professional painter and a devotee of French Impressionism with a formidable body of work. It was in 1889, when she was 41 years old, that Perry saw her first Impressionist painting (a work by Claude Monet). Perry sought out the artist and became his close friend.
