Jump past Instagram images to the footer. Happy birthday to artist Minerva  Chapman (1858–1947)! Chapman studied at Mount Holyoke from 1876–1878 and went on to study painting at the Art Institute of Chicago. She became a highly successful painter of portrait miniatures and was one of the first American women to be elected a member of the esteemed Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts. While better known for her watercolor portraits, Chapman employs oil paint in this 1913 work, titled “Woman Polishing Pots,” allowing her to experiment with light & abstract forms. #artistbirthday @mhcartmuseum We’ve received some great visits from @mtholyoke classes in the past few weeks! Seen here are students in Terre Vandale’s “Sight-Specific Dance” class responding to @mhcartmuseum artworks through movement. #movementbasedlearning #objectbasedlearning #teachingwithart #classes If you are looking for a way to spend time with family or loved ones this holiday season, the @mhcartmuseum has an idea for you!
