William McGregor Paxton


Agent Triple P has become rather fond of naked American women this month (more of which in due course). Given the women in question were rather camera shy we thought we would, instead, display this rather fine picture by William Paxton called Glow of gold, gleam of pearl. Paxton, who was mainly a portrait painter, (born 1869) produced this rather fine study in 1906.

Baltimore born Paxton died of a heart attack literally on the job whilst painting a picture of his wife in 1941.

But he has left these two nice nudes for posterity: obviously the same woman and a very fine woman at that. Perhaps it was his wife!
