The National Arts Club celebrates the women who made the Morgan.
Best known for its namesake financier J. Pierpont Morgan, the Morgan Library & Museum is also indebted to the women who were instrumental in shaping the institution and its collections.
Join Daria Rose Foner, Research Associate to the Director, and Jennifer Tonkovich, Eugene and Clare Thaw Curator, Drawings and Prints, as they discuss the lives and careers of Belle da Costa Greene (1879–1950), private librarian of J. Pierpont Morgan and inaugural director of the Morgan; and Felice Stampfle (1913–2000), first curator of the collection of Drawings and Prints. Foner and Tonkovich explore the lasting marks left on the Morgan by these extraordinary figures by examining Greene and Stampfle’s leadership, scholarship, and acquisitions.Buy tickets/get more info now
