Eve Kahn is a historian and journalist, specializing in art, architecture, design and preservation, and was for many years a weekly Antiques Columnist for the New York Times. Eva will speak on her recent book, Forever Seeing New Beauties: The Forgotten Impressionist Mary Rogers Williams, 1857-1907.
Revolutionary artist Mary Rogers Williams, a baker's daughter from Hartford, biked and hiked from the Arctic Circle to Naples, exhibited from Paris to Indianapolis, trained at the Art Students League, chafed against art world rules that favored men, wrote thousands of pages about her travels and work, and taught at Smith College for nearly two decades. This talk will be at the Hawthorne. Sign up at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-forgotten-impressionist-mary-rogers-williams-1857-1907-tickets-94142519811
