Lecture: Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte and the Creation of an Imperial Legacy
September 21, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
In this lecture based on her book, “A Woman of Two Worlds: Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte,” Alexandra Deutsch, director of collections and interpretation at the Maryland Historical Society, analyzes Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte’s personal belongings and letters to create a material culture biography of the woman whose seductive beauty and tragic marriage have long been documented. This heavily illustrated lecture also includes aspects of the Bonaparte story previously overlooked and revealed by the study of objects in the vast Bonaparte family collections.
