Description
View across the Bowdoin Gallery on the upper level of the Walker Art Building during a gallery conversation on September 20, 2016 with Laura Fecych Sprague, consulting curator of decorative arts, and Joachim Homann (center), the Museum's curator. In 1767 James Bowdoin III's older sister Elizabeth sat for John Copley, one of the most prominent artists in the American colonies. Copley created a pastel drawing that depicts a fashionably dressed and elegant woman, demonstrating his skill in a medium which Copley himself believed best represented his artistic achievements. On loan from a New York gallery, the pastel is installed in the Bowdoin Gallery alongside three other portraits of Elizabeth from the Museum's collection.
