EVENT
The Enterprising Eliza Greatorex
March 25, 2021 | 6:30pm - 7:30pm

LOCATION: Virtual

Among the treasures of the National Academy of Design is Ferdinand Thomas Lee Boyle's portrait of Eliza Greatorex, painted upon her election to the Academy in 1869. Join Katherine Manthorne for this fascinating lecture that traces the challenges Greatorex faced as a widow with four children and meager financial resources to achieve success in New York's male-dominated art world. The lecture will also unravel the meaning of Boyle's compelling likeness of this enterprising fifty-year old woman dressed in black and holding a pen. 

Registrants will receive a Zoom link two hours prior to the program. 

Free admission and programs for Thursdays at the Figge sponsored by Chris and Mary Rayburn
