Better known for his impressionist landscapes and cityscapes, Boston artist Arthur Goodwin turned his attention to figures around the time of the landmark Armory Show of 1913—America’s first large-scale encounter with modern art. This compelling image depicts his friend Louis Kronberg at work in his Boston studio; both artists are reflected in the depicted mirror. Featuring many of the popular conventions of studio scenes, the painting also reveals Goodwin’s growing awareness of modernism, particularly the progressive work of English artist Walter Sickert, which was included in the Armory Show.
Harvey Fairfield Additon, Boston, before 1965; with Victor D. Spark, New York, 1965; Mr. and Mrs. Raymond J. Horowitz, New York, 1965–1975
