Very pretty sheet bearing the artist's monogram.
Emma Chadwick, née Emma Hilma Amalia Löwstädt (1855, Stockholm - 1932, Avignon) is an artist specializing in genre scenes and portraits. Granddaughter of Carl Theodor Löwstädt, a miniature painter and printmaker from Germany, she studied at the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts from 1874 to 1880. In 1881, after spending several summers on the French coast, she went to Paris to finish her studies at the Académie Julian where she rubbed shoulders with Anders Zorn. She then settled in the Swedish artists' colony of Grez-sur-Loing where she met her husband, the American painter Francis Brooks Chadwick. They married and bought an inn there in 1887 which became a privileged meeting place for expatriate artists. She also traveled extensively, visiting Brittany, Spain, North Africa, Italy, the United States, and England. She gradually moved from painting to printmaking becoming an active member of the Grafiska sällskapet (Graphic Society) when it was founded in 1910. She exhibited her work at the Palace of Fine Arts at the Colombian World Exhibition from 1893 to Chicago and continued to participate in exhibitions and shows until 1924. She was featured in the 2018 exhibition Women Artists in Paris: 1850-1900 at the American Federation of Arts in Louisville.
