Abbott Handerson Thayer - "A Virgin" (1892-1893) Thayer began this group portrait of his children, Gladys, Mary, and Gerald, soon after the untimely death of their mother in 1891. He originally envisioned the central figure, Mary, as Flora, the Greek goddess of flowers, but he decided to make her a Greek "Victory" figure instead, with clouds billowing behind her like wings.
