Grace H. Murray, Vicki, ca. 1935, watercolor on ivory, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of the American Society of Miniature Painters, 1965.30.12
We only know the first name of the young girl in this portrait, but her dress and nosegay suggest this miniature may have been painted on the occasion of a family celebration. If so, then her expression suggests that she did not enjoy the event. Grace Murray signed this piece with a stylized monogram. Many American and English artists designed such “trademarks” as instantly recognizable signatures.
