Alice Worthington Ball studied in Paris and lived variously in Boston, Baltimore, and Gloucester. In 1910, the Christian Science Monitor offered her this early if somewhat backhanded praise: “Miss Ball has mastered the craft and paints like a man.” Four years later, the Boston Evening Transcript was more specific: “Miss Ball is not a timid painter. She wields an emphatic brush.” At the conclusion of her one-person exhibition at MAG in April 1922, she presented this large, harmonious canvas as a gift.
