Emily Eastman (b. 1902 or 1904-death date unknown)
She painted watercolor portraits in a so-called naïve style typical of self-trained American painters working in New England in the first decades of the nineteenth century. Almost nothing is known of Eastman's life. She was born in Loudon, New Hampshire, some seventy-five miles northwest of Boston, Massachusetts, and married Dr. Daniel Baker in 1824. Between about 1820 and 1830, Eastman made several watercolor bust portraits of women in fashionable dress and coiffure; one likeness of a young girl is also known.
Like many contemporary folk artists, Eastman rarely signed her paintings, but those that are unsigned can be attributed as to her on the basis of such similarities as prominent thin, delicately arched eyebrows, small bowed mouths, and elaborate coiffures of tight curls crowned by jewelry, flowers, and other adornments.
