The Letter1926 by Agnes Goodsir

Agnes Goodsir studied at the Bendigo School of Mines and Industries before moving to Paris in 1899. After holding a sale of her work in Bendigo to finance her travels abroad, Goodsir found herself consumed by Parisian life, establishing a reputation for her portraiture and still life painting. The Letter was completed the same year Goodsir was invited to become a member of the Salon Nationale des Beaux-Arts, only the second Australian women to receive this honor. It is believed the figure in this painting is Rachel Dunn, her model and companion.
