Into the Archives: Curators in Conversation

A Tale of Two Figures

Reminding visitors of the apple trees that dot Shelburne Museum’s 45-acre campus, Apple Picking by Louise Ross (1913-2001) is a sculpture that might have appealed to museum founder Electra Havemeyer Webb’s penchant for narrative. The five-foot-tall figure’s story, however, may be more complicated than it first appears. New research has linked Apple Picking to a sculpture by Mary Anderson Clark (1910-1994) titled Harvest (1939) currently located in Peoria, Illinois. Join Associate Curator Katie Wood Kirchhoff to explore this WPA-era art history mystery, a twentieth-century tale of two figures.

3 p.m.

Free with Museum admission. Pre-registration not required but appreciated.
