Molly Peacock will give us a deep dive into the painting techniques of Mary Hiester Reid, covering Tonalism and Impressionism as well as how MHR’s landscapes, interiors, and still life paintings can be seen as self-portraits. Using her AGO video, Open Door, she will show us how MHR, a 19th and early 20th-century member of WAAC, opened the door for women to be married artists with money-making careers. She showed us how to deal with rival painters, too. Molly’s biography Flower Diary: Mary Hiester Reid Paints, Travels, Marries & Opens a Door will be published this fall.
