High Style in the Gilded Age:
Grace Clarke Newton
Thursday, January 28, 11am
The tenth lecture on women of the Gilded Age in Southampton will tell the story of Grace Clarke Newton. As the daughter of the prominent New York art collector, Thomas B. Clarke, Grace appears headed down the typical path of a daughter of privilege, adored as a child and destined to marry well. Yet something in her romantic, poetic nature sets her apart and adds an element of mystery to her brief life.
