Art Review - "Dorothea in the Woods" by Cecilia Beaux - Whitney Museum of Art, New York

For this #museumtourtuesday, I'm featuring a painting that I haven't seen in person yet, but I'll get the chance to soon.

I'm a big fan of Cecilia Beaux's work, and this piece is not only a great composition, but has a wonderful subtlety of value control. While Kimberly and I have been to the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York numerous times, this piece was not on display during our visits. 
 
I was excited to learn recently that it will be part of an upcoming exhibition at the San Antonio Museum of Art this summer.
