Magazine Antiques, new issue--has "dressed miniatures" piece

September 05, 2021 1:35 PM | Mary Mangan (Administrator)

Although we broke the story of the discovery of that new piece of Ipswich Lace on a "dressed miniature" in our newsletter last time--there is a larger, luscious story about the Way sisters and their work in the current issue of Magazine Antiques. It is not online yet (although it looks like they put them up eventually). This one does not emphasize the lace, but it shows it on Sarah Sage at a nice size and high quality image.

Dressed for Success

The evolution of artistic recognition and appreciation for early American miniaturists Mary Way and Betsey Way Champlain

By Brian Ehrlich. 

I have a hard copy--but it might be a nice thing to have for some of the folks who will demo Ipswich lace at some point as well. I don't know how hard it is to get paper copies of magazines anymore, I rarely try. But should you want one, the window may be small.

    If you don't need a paper copy, I noticed that the Minuteman digital library system has this magazine in their collection. So you can read the article and still see the images.

    The Way sisters are really interesting.
