Artist Katherine Pfeffer Pross presented her new portrait “Elizabeth Cady Stanton, The Seed of Consciousness,” at Elizabeth’s Bloomers Gallery in Seneca Falls on March 8, 2008. The 4′ x 5′ work shows Stanton sitting at the desk where she wrote the Declaration of Sentiments in 1848 with a suffrage banner in the background. The original portrait will be hung permanently in the National Women’s Hall of Fame when the hall moves into its new home at the former Seneca Knitting Mill in Seneca Falls.
Signed and numbered prints (22″ x 27.5″) are available for $200 and prints with a personal remarque from the artist for $275, with $150 being tax deductible as a donation to the Hall. Contact the National Women’s Hall of Fame at 315-568-8060 or www.greatwomen.org.
