Oil on canvas
Unframed: 90.6 x 57.4 cm (35 11/16 x 22 5/8 in.)
Gift of Will Low Bacher 1966.388
Bacher was the first artist from Cleveland to achieve international renown, and this portrait of his wife exemplifies the Impressionist style he adopted after studying in Paris during the late 1880s. The painting’s unusual subject testifies to the emergence of tennis as one of the few sports of the era in which women could participate without being considered inappropriately masculine or uncouth.
