Hannah Morse

A fictive archive of a landscape painter who worked from the mid 19th century to an undetermined date. In this archive, Hannah Morse acts as a lens to provide insight and perspective to the artistic and cultural aspirations and accomplishments of the women of her time. Matilda Joslyn Gage, a real life icon, was a noted protagonist of the women’s movement in that century of struggle. The exhibition imagines the friendship that would surely have developed between these two vibrant personalities. Images in A Painting Lesson document the fictional day that Morse, Gage and Gage’s friend Bessie Teague go on a landscape painting expedition.
