This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Little is known of the life and works of the expatriate painter Rosalie Lorraine Gill. She was thought to have been born in 1867 in Elmira, New York. In 1874 she moved from New York to Baltimore with her father, who probably encouraged her early interest in art, since he owned a painting collection and in 1888 helped found an art group in Baltimore called the Charcoal Club.

Gill began her studies at the age of twelve at the Art Students League in New York where she studied under William Merritt Chase, whose portrait of her (unlocated) was exhibited at the 1889 Exposition. Chase's influence is quite evident in Gill's pictures, they both "stylistically and thematically" relate to his oeuvre. It is also interesting to note that in 1884 Gill listed her address as the Tenth Street Studio Building, where Chase's renowned studio was located.

Gill moved to Paris and by 1888 she began showing at the Paris Salon, she listed herself as a pupil of Alfred Stevens, the Belgian artist whose work Chase greatly admired. During her first years in Paris, Gill enjoyed a tremendous vogue at the turn of the century. Many American artists, among them Mary Cassatt, Elizabeth Nourse, and George de Forest Brush, were drawn to her works perhaps because of its ability to convey "the memory of universal origins and protective love at a time when life-and art-was becoming increasingly fragmented and depersonalized." Gill's work displayed the stylistic influence of her two teachers, Chase and Stevens, in its painterly technique and subject matter. She often incorporated a dark background in her figural work, a hallmark of the Munich School.

Gill remained in Paris the rest of her life with her husband Rene Lara.She exhibited extensively during her career at the Philadelphia Art Club; the Society of American Artists; the National Academy of Design; the Paris Salon; Paris Exposition, 1889 and others. Rosalie Lorraine Gill passed away in Paris in 1898.
