Literature

(Likely) Pauline Palmer: American Impressionist, 1867–1938 (Peoria, IL: Lakeview Museum of Arts and Sciences, 1984), n.p., no. 16.

Note: Palmer lived mainly in Chicago and Provincetown, Massachusetts in her later years. Home to a thriving art colony, Palmer’s paintings of Provincetown summer streets are emblematic of the era, when it was quaint and not yet a busy tourist destination.
