A Girl with a Fan
Oil on canvas
Acquired by Sterling and Francine Clark, 1939
"[During my preschool class's] field trip to the Clark . . . the children became 'friends' with the artists whose works are displayed and learned about some of the pictures they painted. The docent gave the children a very technical explanation about why the girl's eyes in this painting seemed to follow the viewer. One three-year-old listened intently and then muttered, 'I still think there is a puppet behind the painting.'"
