Adina Gordon: In An Old French Garden – Mary Fairchild MacMonnies in Giverny
2013 this event has passed
Mary Fairchild Low was a painter and wife of Will Hicok Low, both prominent members of the artist colony that flourished in Bronxville in the late-19th and early-20th centuries. Before moving to Bronxville in 1910, Mary led a fascinating life in Giverny. Married at the time to the sculptor and painter Frederick MacMonnies, Mary lived just down the road from the Impressionist painter Claude Monet, and she enjoyed the stimulation and camaraderie of the American expatriate group of artists who had settled there in the late-19th century.
Dr. E. Adina Gordon, esteemed author, lecturer, and art historian, shared her extensive knowledge of Mary’s extraordinary life in Giverny.
