Saturday, April 13th, 2024 - 10:30AM EDT - Live meeting with live presenter.

  • Rachel L. Lovett - Executive Director - Falmouth Historical Society"The Art of Mourning: A Closer Look at Early 19th Century Falmouth Cousins"
  • ​Join Falmouth Historical Society’s Executive Director, Rachel Lovett, for a lecture on early 19th century mourning art. The talk features a collection of four pieces of silk embroidery by sixteen-year-old female Falmouth contemporaries, with familial connections, made in the early 19th century. The pieces are silk embroidery, watercolor, and often verre-eglomise (reverse glass painted frames). The imagery includes urns, weeping willows, and memorials that modern day culture now associated with mourning.

    The lecture will cover the history of mourning art, materials and production, a look at the Falmouth examples, and connections to modern day Falmouth from the pieces.
