Marguerite Stuber Pearson was a firm proponent of the Boston School tradition, characterized by her mastery of academic technique and the selection of traditional subjects of portraiture, figures in interiors, and still life paintings. After seeing Pearson' debut exhibition at the Guild of Boston Artists in 1931, Edmund Tarbell wrote to Pearson saying, “We are glad that you stick to the Boston tradition, and we look to you to uphold it, which you have more than done and are still doing.”
 “The Art Week,” Boston Globe, 1931, and Tarbell to Pearson, 1931, both quoted in “Marguerite S. Pearson 1898-1978,” (unpublished manuscript, Vose Galleries).
