Lunch & Learn: All About Portraiture

—Painting shown above: Anne Goldthwaite, Chief Justice George Goldthwaite, oil on canvas.

Join us at the Alabama Supreme Court building in downtown Montgomery at 10:00 am on Wednesday, July 19 for a private tour of the Junius Moore Riggs Portrait Collection.

At this program, our first in a series of programs dedicated to portraiture, Tim Lewis, Director at the Alabama Supreme Court & State Law Library, will show us the Anne Wilson Goldthwaite portrait of her grandfather Chief Justice George Goldthwaite. This painting was one of many fine portraits included in our recent "Tallassee NOW" exhibition. The Junius Moore Riggs Portrait Collection which we will view at the Alabama Supreme Court building consists of over 130 portraits of Alabama governors, chief justices, and appellate judges.

In addition to the Goldthwaite portrait, we will also see portraits by William Frye and Nicola Marschall both very prominent early portrait painters that ounce called Alabama home, but were not participants in the Dixie Art Colony.
