Description:
The stunning portrait of Mrs. Irene M. Peacock currently on display in The Frick Art Museum has many stories to tell, including how it found its way into our collection, the extensive conservation treatment it recently received, and the history of the Pittsburgh woman portrayed. Join Dawn Reid Brean, Associate Curator of Decorative Arts, and Laura Engel, Ph.D., Professor of English in the McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts at Duquesne University, for a lively conversation about these stories along with a look at how Mrs. Peacock’s choices of clothing and self-presentation represent a connection to aristocratic portraiture.
