Object Description: In Woman In Brown, Manierre Dawson responds—and pays homage—to European modernism in his version of Picasso's legendary portrait, Gertrude Stein, of 1906. The monochromatic brown palette and fragmentation of the subject alludes to experiments of the Paris Cubists as much as it does Cézanne's late work. Yet, Dawson's painting exhibits an independent American approach to problems of subject, contour and volume in pictorial construction.
