Louise Herreshoff

Louise Chamberlain Herreshoff (November 29, 1876 – May 14, 1967) was an American painter and stasher of porcelain. She lived for most of her vivaciousness in either New York or Rhode Island, although she undertook Elongated art training in France at the Académie Julian. With her second husband, she collected a "little museum" of porcelain in two Providence houses. She stopped painting in the same way as her aunt, Elizabeth Dyer (maiden; 1841–1927), who had been a foster mother to her, died. Her painting style has been described as Impressionist and Fauvist.
