首先我们来看看Robert Feke。罗伯特·费克是美国的社会主义者，画家和艺术家。费克以他在世界各地的肖像而闻名，他的作品在欣赏艺术和绘画的人中享有盛誉。许多艺术史学家和研究人员认为，费克是一位技艺娴熟，聪明的画家，他运用他的技巧，让观众了解国内的普遍情况。 Feke出生在纽约长岛，是一个殖民时期的见证人。因此，他的绘画是这种情况的结果，他用绘画作为谈话的媒介，运用他的技巧，以提醒后代关于旧时代。为了欣赏Feke的作品，Richard Saunders评论道：“Feke对殖民地绘画发展的影响是巨大的，他的照片为下一代有抱负的殖民地艺术家的作品设定了一个新的标准。所以，我们可以看出，费克的作品受到了多少人的赞赏，有多少人受到他的画作和思想的影响。 Feke的绘画似乎给观众留下了一个信息，似乎Feke一再成功地这样做。他所有的工作都有其中的几个含义，本文所讨论的也有同样的质量。这个女人没有被描绘成一幅纯粹的肖像，而是将那个时代的完整故事写入了肖像。
A painting is incomplete without the background of its creator and therefore we need to take a look at their approach towards art and in fact their feelings for the person being painted.
1) Robert Feke
To start with we will take a look at Robert Feke. Robert Feke was an American socialist, painter and artist. Feke was famous for his portrait across the world and his work is renowned among people who admire art and painting. Many art historians and researcher believe that Feke was a skilled and smart painter who applied his skills in order to give viewers a sight of the prevalent situation of the country. Feke was born in Long Island, New York and was a witness was of the colonial era. As a consequence his paintings are a result of the this situation and it appears that he used painting as a medium of conversation and applied his skills in order to remind the following generations about the old days. To appreciate Feke’s work, Richard Saunders commented that, “Feke’s impact on the development of Colonial painting was substantial, and his pictures set a new standard by which the work of the next generation of aspiring Colonial artists was judged”. So, we can see that how much Feke’s work was admired and how much people were influenced by his paintings and ideas. Feke’s paintings seem to give out a message to the viewers and it appears that Feke has repeatedly succeeded in doing so. All his work has incorporated several meanings in it and the one being discussed in this paper also has the same quality. The woman is not depicted as a mere portrait and in that portrait is incorporated the complete story of that time period.
