Eunice Pinney
Eunice Pinney (1770–1849) was an American folk artist active in the towns of Windsor and Simsbury, Connecticut. According to art historian Jean Lipman, a specialist in American folk painting, Pinney and her contemporary Mary Ann Willson are considered two of the earliest American painters to work in the medium of watercolor. This painting, entitled Lolotte et Werther, depicts a scene from Goethe's popular novel The Sorrows of Young Werther, and is in the collection of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.Painting credit: Eunice Pinney
