Marietta Minnigerode Andrews: Womanhood and the Arts
Born to a prominent Virginia family, Marietta Minnigerode Andrews’ writings and artwork characterize a southern, white woman trying to make sense of the rapid changes in American society at the turn of the century. Her work, at times nostalgic, functioned as a criticism of the effects of modernity on its celebration of the past. This lecture, by Krystyn R. Moon, Ph.D., University of Mary Washington, Department of History and American Studies, will explore Andrews’s work as an artist and a writer, giving insight to life in the Washington metropolitan region in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
