Walter Gay’s Interior , painted about 1900 (opposite), is inscribed to the Comtesse de Fitz-James and probably shows a room in her house in Paris. Gay, born in Massachusetts, spent virtually all his adult life in France, painting interiors empty of people, in his words, “giving personality to objects and furniture.”

We hope you enjoy our work.
