Biographical or historical data
Lilla Cabot Perry (1848-1933) was born in Boston, a member of the prominent Cabot family. She married Thomas Sargeant Perry, a literature professor at Harvard, and through him became friends with writers such as Henry James and William Dean Howells. Perry wrote several volumes of poetry: "Heart of the Weed" (1886), "From the Garden of Hellas" (1891), "Impressions" (1898), and "Jar of Dreams" (1923). Primarily known as an artist, Perry was mentored by Claude Monet and helped introduce his impressionist techniques to the United States. A close friend of fellow poet, Edwin Arlington Robinson, she painted what is probably his best-known portrait in 1916, currently on display in Colby College Special Collections Robinson Room
