Lidia Cabot Perry (better known as Lila Cabot Perry) (born Lilla Cabot Perry, born January 13, 1848. Boston - died. February 28, 1933 Hancock, New Hampshire) - American artist - impressionist.
Lydia was born in the family of a famous Boston surgeon, Dr. Cabot. In the family, the girl was called Leela. Her parents were secular and maintained friendly relations with such cultural figures as Ralph W. Emerson, Louise M. Alcott, and James R. Lowell. L. Cabot received a brilliant classical education, studied literature, languages and music. During the years of the US Civil War, her abolitionist parents actively helped northerners.
In 1874, L. Cabot married the professor of English literature from Harvard Thomas Perry, the nephew of the US Navy Commodore Matthew C. Perry, and gave birth to three daughters in this marriage. L. Perry began painting at the time of marriage and the birth of children. I spent some time in Japan and in France, where I drew a lot. After meeting with Claude Monet, held in 1894, the artist dramatically changes her style and technique of the image. Of the other genres, L. K. Perry favored landscape painting.
