ABOUT THE EVENT
Gallery Talk | Cecilia Beaux by Elizabeth Lamont
Cecilia Beaux, an American portrait painter who lived from 1855-1942, was commissioned to paint portraits of a variety of people, including political figures, religious leaders, military heroes, as well as family and friends. Her portraiture, whether depicting a famous person or a close relative, invites the viewer to focus on the individual depicted. This gallery talk will explore the themes of memory and identity in the portraits painted by Beaux. We will view Beaux's Mrs. Elizabeth M. Howe (1903), which is in the NBMAA's permanent collection, and discuss other paintings by Beaux that highlight her style of portraiture.
