Florence Hosmer, Age 16

FloHosmerPainter Florence Hosmer, a younger (much younger) cousin of sculptor Harriet Hosmer, lived in Sudbury, Massachusetts most of her life. Her former home is now a museum housing her artwork and furniture. A painter of portraits, Hosmer’s first known attempt was this self-portrait at age 16. She received many commissions in her lifetime, but mainly painted family and friends.
