A Feminine Palette: Women Artists of the 19th and Early 20th Centuries

Presented by the Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden

Friday, March 5th at 6:30 PM

Panelists Dr. Katherine Manthorne of City University of New York’s Graduate Center; Catherine Coleman Brawer, M.A. Institute of Fine Arts, New York University; and Ph.D student Whitney Thompson, also of City University of New York’s Graduate Center, discuss the work of three extraordinary yet often- overlooked 19th and 20th century artists. Eliza Pratt Greatorex was an illustrator of rural Manhattan; Hildreth Meière was famous for her murals in buildings throughout the country; and Fanny Palmer was a prolific Currier and Ives Lithographer.  Guests are invited to learn about these unique women and how they became successful artists.

This program funded by the New York Council for the Humanities.
