This artwork comes from the private collection. The painting and signature were examined by the experts. Provenance is included in the Certification of Authenticity that will be provided with the painting.

Mariquita Gill (1861-1915) was an American painter. She was among the first generation of American painters to live and work in Giverny, France, during the 1890s. Mariquita Gill applied the light and coloristic concerns of Impressionism to views of the Seine Valley, depicting grain stacks and poplar trees, as well as the lush flowers growing in her garden. Upon relinquishing her expatriate lifestyle, Gill returned to the United States, where she was associated with the artistic life of Massachusetts.

Gill was born in 1861 in Montevideo, Uruguay. She began studying art in Boston in the 1880s. She continued her studies at the Art Students League of New York. In 1885, she moved to Paris where she studied at the Academie Julian. By the 1890s she had seen an exhibit of Claude Monet's work and subsequently moved to Giverny. In 1893, Gill's work was exhibited at the Palace of Fine Arts at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Illinois.

Gill returned to America in 1897, settling in Massachusetts. She exhibited her work at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Boston Art Club, the Copley Society of Art, the Boston Art Club, and the Society of American Artists.
