Bootie Charon, Smith class of 1959
"From Buttercups to Dollar Bills," my paper for Oliver Larkin's American Art class began as I sat in front of this portrait. Have you ever held a buttercup under a friend's chin? Look at the golden highlighting along Henrietta's jaw-line! At our 50th reunion, my suite-mate, Betsey, and I visited the Museum of Art several times. To my delight, Gilbert Stuart's Portrait of a Young Girl (its title in the 1950s), was still there!
