Susan Watkins Serpell was an impressionist and realist painter of great ability. A posthumous portrait of her, painted by her teacher William Merritt Chase hangs in the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk. It is surrounded by several of her own works. "It is hypothesized that she would have become famous similar to the likes of Mary Cassatt, Cecilia Beaux, and Georgia O'Keeffe if not for her untimely death at the age of 38" from the Richmond Times.

I am a security guard at the Chrysler Museum and pass by her works on a nightly basis. Her artwork makes my job a true delight! She is currently the most represented portrait artist in one of the galleries in perhaps the finest midsized art museum in America.
