John Franklin Stacey was born in Biddeford, Maine and went to the Massachusetts Normal Art School in Boston where he received formal training. Traveling to Paris in 1883 he studied at the Academie Julian under the famous Gustave Boulanger and Jules Lefebvre. It was not until he took a trip to Europe in 1900 where he began to learn the style of impressionism and incorporate them into beautiful landscapes. John won several prestigious awards including three at the Art Institute and bronze medals at the St. Louis Exposition in 1904 and in BuenosAires in 1910.

John Married the more famous American artist Anna Lee Dey in 1891 and in 1894 he painted this beautiful portrait of a young girl. This painting is executed in oil on canvas and is signed in the lower right "J.F. Stacey". Painted with a mild impressionist style seen in her white shirt as it is composed of thick white brushstrokes gives it a sense of motion and life. The detail in the face is rather outstanding and their is a lot of warmth making it feel like your really looking into her face, not a painting. The condition overall is good besides a pin hole in each corner, a couple white marks along the bottom and a couple flakes of missing paint. The images provided accurately represent the condition, quality and overall beauty of this rare original composition.
