Iconic portrait featured at Sporting Library and Museum exhibit
Miss Charlotte has gone visiting! The striking painting of Foxcroft’s founder that generally resides in the main hall of Schoolhouse is a featured item of the inaugural exhibit at the National Sporting Library and Museum’s beautiful new art museum.
The exhibit, entitled Sports Afield: 400 Years of Animal and Sporting, includes nearly 150 pieces, which curator F. Turner Reuter, Jr., calls “exemplary works. . . selected to underline the evolution of animal and sporting art in American and to highlight, not only the value of these works as an expression of the history of American life and culture, but ultimately, as a reflection of the American experience.”
The 40x30inch oil canvas of Miss Charlotte, painted by Ellen Gertrude Emmett Rand in 1929, is among the 11 portraits included in the exhibit.
We are honored to have Miss Charlotte included in this important exhibit and invite you to visit her at the National Sporting Library and Museum at the corner of Washington Street and The Plains Road in Middleburg before the exhibit closes on January 14, 2012.
