Robert Reid was among the founding members of the Ten American Painters, a loosely defined group of French-trained artists associated with Impressionism. Best known for his decorative figure paintings featuring elegant women enveloped in outdoor settings, Reid went on to specialize in murals. This work recalls the "Smell" panel in his "Five Senses" series at the Library of Congress.
