The Impressionist Trove in the Boathouse

October 30, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Lecture: The Impressionist Trove in the Boathouse: How I Rediscovered the Adventurous Painter Mary Rogers Williams (1857-1907)

Eve Kahn, Antiques Columnist, New York Times

The painter Mary Rogers Williams ran Smith College’s art department, biked across Europe, drew crowds when she sketched in village squares, knew Whistler and Ryder, wrote home every day, died young, and was totally forgotten until now. Kahn explains how she stumbled across Mary’s archive and surviving paintings and found one-degree-of-separation connections between Mary and celebrities including Emily Dickinson, Boss Tweed, and Gertrude Stein.
