Tack, Agnes Gordon Fuller

American, 1873 - 1959

Tack, Augustus Vincent, Mrs.


Agnes Gordon Fuller, known by family members as Violet, was the only daughter among the five children of the artist George Fuller and his wife Agnes Gordon Higginson. Born in 1873, she was a particular favorite of her parents, who worried constantly about her delicate health. A student of painting, she took classes in New York City during the late 1890s. She gave up her own work, however, when she married the artist Augustus Vincent Tack in 1900. The Tacks lived variously in Deerfield, New York City, Washington, D.C., and Conway , Massachusetts. Agnes Tack also traveled widely, often spending summers at mountain spas for reasons of health. She died in 1959, predeceased by her husband and two children. A portrait of her mother painted by her father is in the NGA collection (1948.1.1). (Kelly et al. 1996, 241, 243)
