The artists are largely alumni or faculty of Moore College. The selections you see above are ca. 1920, painted by members of the Philadelphia 10, a prominent group of woman artists who worked and exhibited together regularly. #artschool #librariesofinstagram #philadelphia #womenartists #oilpaintings Stop in and checkout our #PrideMonth book display 🌈, including this classic by #AudreLorde. #zami #biomythography #librariesofinstagram #happypride #libraryatmoorebooks #saturdaysuggestions Fun Cover Friday: We love this Vitamin P3 book cover!
