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.
