Two Elizas in Old New York: Eliza Greatorex Picturing Eliza Jumel’s Mansion” with Katherine Manthorne, Author and Professor of Art History, Graduate Center, City University of New York
Responding to urban renewal following the Civil War, Eliza Greatorex made drawings of Manhattan's disappearing landmarks and compiled them in her magisterial volume Old New York (1875). In this visual presentation, we follow the artist as she surveyed the island city, beginning at the Battery and culminating in her illustrations of the Morris Jumel Mansion.
RESCHEDULED FROM MARCH.
