About the Artwork

This etching was Zorn’s first commission from Isabella Gardner. With her black dress, distinctive feather plume and coat of arms, Gardner is shown here as a status-conscious member of the American upper class. The date on the inscription, 18 February 1894, marked Zorn’s 34th birthday. He celebrated this occasion with Gardner at a party thrown in his honor at her home in Boston’s Back Bay.
