Susan Watkins
American, 1875–1913
Lady in Yellow (Eleanor Reeves), 1902
Oil on canvas

After building an international reputation in Paris and New York, American painter Susan Watkins married her longtime suitor, Norfolk native Goldsborough Serpell, in 1912. The couple moved to Virginia, but the artist had already fallen ill and died the following year. Her husband later donated 62 works by Watkins to the Museum. Unlike John Singer Sargent and professional society portraitists of the day, Watkins concentrated on creating distinctive visual arrangements of light and color, using family and friends as models. Here her sister Eleanor poses in a shadowy interior wearing a brilliant yellow dress.

About the Artist

Susan Watkins

Susan Watkins (1875 – 1913) was an American artist, known for painting in the styles of realism and impressionism. She studied under William Merritt Chase and Raphaël Collin.

At his death in 1946, Norfolk, Virginia, banker Goldsborough Serpell bequeathed to the Norfolk Museum of Arts and Sciences (now the Chrysler Museum of Art) a remarkable gift of paintings, oil studies, academic drawings, and sketches by his wife, the artist Susan Watkins. Among the most important acquisitions made by the museum prior to the arrival of Walter P. Chrysler's collection in 1971, the donation comprises sixty-two works of art by Watkins, as well as photographs, scrapbooks, and other memorabilia documenting her career. It also includes a posthumous portrait of the artist painted by her colleague and longtime friend William Merritt Chase.
