The Demise of Mary Lincoln: An Artistic Conspiracy - 3.25.22

Time: 6:00 PM

Location: Zoom

*Please note that this event has been canceled. Our sincere condolences to Mr. Bauman's family.

In the 19th century, the court of public opinion depicted Mary Lincoln as both a sainted war widow and a vilified spendthrift. Battles to control how she, and by extension her family, were viewed seemed to reflect the anxieties of a deeply conflicted nation. In one extraordinary case of hidden identity, Mary Lincoln's image was so powerful that it trapped another woman under layers of paint and varnish for nearly 100 years. Hear this remarkable story from the man who uncovered the truth, professional art conservationist Barry Bauman.
