Passionate and ambitious, Cecilia Beaux renounced marriage, motherhood, and docility to become one of the most distinguished portrait painters in America, in the vein of John Singer Sargent and Mary Cassatt. A committed professional, Beaux came to prominence in 1899 for her penetrating, exquisitely rendered portraits of the American upper classes and was awarded membership to the male-dominated National Academy. She was best known for her portraits of women and children and painted the wife and daughter of American President Teddy Roosevelt in the White House.
