Notes:
Title devised by Henry and Nancy Rosin.
Felice Beato was born in Venice around 1825. During his lifetime, he accompanied the British troops in India, recording images of the Indian Mutiny in 1857, and the Franco-British troops in China to cover the end of the Second Opium War in 1859. With his friend Charles Wirgman, Beato opened a photography studio in Yokohama, Japan in the early 1860s, and produced many images of the Japanese and their lifestyle, as interpreted by the Westerners. Selling his studio to Baron von Stillfried in 1877, Beato eventually died in Burma around 1908.
Summary:
Three ornately dressed young women with powdered faces and dressed hair pose in an outdoor setting. A young girl dressed in rags stands to the right of the trio.
According to Henry Rosin, this print demonstrates Beato's artistry as as a master of capturing social conflicts.
This print is a pair with Baron von Stillfried's print of the same image, with the exception of the young ragged girl. (Rosin number 139) When von Stillfried purchased Beato's studio in 1877, he also purchased Beato's negatives, of which included "Three women and a girl." Since von Stillfried's studio was for commercial uses, he cropped out the young girl and cut the photo. Only very rarely can one find such clear evidence of the artistry of Beato and the commercialization of von Stillfried.

ID Number:
2013.0125.01
Accession number:

Catalog number:
2013.0125.01
Description:
This broadside contains the lyrics to “The Factory Girl’s Song,” a folk song whose origins date back at least to the 1830s. The song’s nineteen 4-line stanzas describe the daily work of the mill girls in different jobs: spinning, weaving, and dressing the finished cloth. At the end the singer tells of returning home to marry, giving up the rigors of tending the machinery and working for harsh overseers. The song may have originated in Lowell, Massachusetts, but some scholars suggest that the reference to wages earned in “shillings” instead of dollars may mean it had connections to Canadian immigrants to the Lowell textile mills. Several iterations of the song are known, including “The Lowell Factory Girl”, “The Factory Girl’s Come-All-Ye” from Lewiston, Maine, and generalized versions titled “Factory Girl.”

Girl Skating

Abastenia St. Léger Eberle, born Webster City, IA 1878-died New York City 1942
Medium:
bronze
Dimensions:
12 7/8 x 11 1/2 x 6 3/4 in. (32.8 x 29.2 x 17.2 cm)
Type:
Sculpture
Date:
1907
Credit Line:
Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase through the C.K. Williams Foundation
Object number:
2011.29
Description:
Abastenia Eberle created several bronze casts of Girl Skating (also known as Roller Skating or Girl with Roller Skate). A year after she was elected to the National Sculpture Society, Eberle exhibited Girl Skating in New York City and Philadelphia. As her first piece that displayed the children of Manhattan's streets, it marked the beginning of her focus on urban poverty. Eberle addressed social issues in this sculpture while capturing the spirit of these poor communities. Girl Skating's uneven surfaces accentuate the girl's tattered appearance, yet her outstretched arms and open-mouthed expression still convey joy and the thrill of play.
"The children of the East side play without restraint; their griefs and their joys are expressed with absolute abandon. . . . They laugh loudly. They shout. They race on roller skates and dance unrestrainedly. I can get at the human quality in these children. They are real— real as can be. They express life." The artist, quoted in the Washington Post, 1906
