Greater Louisville Region: Painted Out of History
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
The Story of Artists Ellen and Rolinda Sharples
Join the Greater Louisville Region for a discussion of Painted Out of History, the story of mother-and-daughter artists Ellen and Rolinda Sharples. Rolinda Sharples painted the iconic Regency scene of the Clifton Assembly Rooms, which opened in 1806—the year Jane Austen visited Clifton. Hear details about the Sharples' life in England and America. Like Austen, Rolinda died far too young, in her 40s, and her work lives on to be appreciated by modern audiences.
