Join Dr. Katherine Manthorne, author of Restless Enterprise: The Life and Art of Eliza Pratt Greatorex (University of California Press, 2020), as she traces the travels of a woman who was considered to be among “the greatest American women in history” but has long been forgotten. Once described as “the first artist of her sex,” the enterprising Greatorex emigrated from Ireland, became a leader in the American women’s movement of the nineteenth century, and went on to document her time in New York, Munich, Paris, Britain, Ireland, Morocco, Colorado, and France through her landscape paintings, drawings, and prints.
