The Housemaid (1910). William McGregor Paxton (1869-1941). Oil on canvas. Paxton and other Boston School artists shared an interest in the 17th century painter Jan Vermeer. The maid's trance-like state, the painting's strong lighting, and the precisely painted still life on the game table all recall the work of the Dutch artist.
