Overview
Excerpt from Catalogue of Finished Pictures, Studies and Drawings by the Late Eastman Johnson, N. A

The works described in this catalogue comprise prac tically all the pictures, studies, and sketches which Mr. Johnson left behind him at his death, and they Show not only his unusual accomplishment as a portraitist and figure painter, but illustrate in a most interesting manner his method Of work and the wide range Of sub jects which appealed to him. Although Mr. Johnson devoted himself mainly, and with distinguished success, to portraiture, he was the pioneer Of domestic genre in this country, and found congenial motives, first among the Indians Of the Lake Superior region, next among the people Of the South, and latterly in New England, where he passed a great portion of his time. Some Of his most important pictures represented events in the life of the New England farmer, such as Corn Husk ing, The Cranberry Harvest and many scenes in the sugar camps. More than a generation ago he made care ful studies Of characteristic types, costumes and in teriors which have Since disappeared entirely, and many of his studies are now Of great historic value, notably those Of Mt. Vernon before changes were made there. Sympathetic in disposition and domestic in taste, the charm of home life appealed very strongly to him, and among his most pleasing works are Simple little inci dents Of child life on the farm.
