An Exquisite Likeness: Copley’s Portrait of Mary Clarke with Carrie Rebora Barratt, The Metropolitan Museum of Art


Please join us to celebrate the recent acquisition of John Singleton Copley’s portrait of Mary Clarke by The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of Ohio. 


This lecture will place this exquisite, small portrait in the context of the artist’s career.  Focusing especially on his portraits of women and his portraits in miniature, Dr. Carrie Rebora Barratt will reveal Copley’s special gifts for portraying Colonial women according to British fashion and contemporary high style taste.


Reservations required. FREE to Art Museum and NSCDA Ohio Members. $10 for the general public; $5 for students.
