For instance, Aimee Ernesta and Cecilia Beaux, based on a photograph, seems much more moving in light of their mother's death and their father's departure.
Generally, in her paintings of children Beaux captures their loveliness and youth as well as their discomforts and squirminess.
We learn from Bockrath, the former chief conservator at the PAFA, that Beaux carefully considered her frames and kept up to date on the latest framing trends.
While Parks's contention that "Old Beaux and Young Beaux" is a companion piece to "Flirts" seems logical because of their similarities, the narrative structure of "My Daughter's Admirers" puts the unpublished essay in a totally different context.
In this satire, Murfree's narrator is James Archer, a wealthy father who frets and catalogs the variety of beaux afflicting his home.
Murfree's progression from "Flirts and Their Ways" to "My Daughter's Admirers" suggests a rapid development of narrative skills, and perhaps this is why "Old Beaux and Young Beaux" was set aside.
