‘Is She By Gustavus Hesselius?’ Zoom Webinar
Please join Stenton on Zoom with Tom Price, a University of Delaware Art History PhD candidate, for consideration and discussion of Stenton’s recently arrived Sarah Logan Norris portrait. Nineteenth-century Logan family tradition attributed the portrait to the English painter Sir Godfrey Kneller; however, Tom’s study of the portrait, including comparisons with other portraits at Stenton and elsewhere and archival research in Logan and Norris family papers at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, points toward the Swedish immigrant painter, Gustavus Hesselius, as the creator of Sarah’s likeness.
This presentation will be on Zoom Webinar. Advanced registration is required here: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_LgM6DkBQQ4WjSRxq8bj5vQ
