In 1951 the African American soprano, educator, and artist Manet Harrison Fowler painted her daughter, Manet Helen, alongside two works of art made and purchased in Liberia. This painting now hangs in a museum for the first time, adjacent to the Liberian objects that it depicts. This talk, led by Annika Finne, the Mario Modestini Fellow in Paintings Conservation, explores the innovative painted textures, objects, and remarkable personal histories in the portrait of Manet Helen, and the act of collecting that is presented in the painting itself. Space is limited. Please meet in the Gallery lobby.
