Dating Jane!

Is it a simple portrait of a mother and child - or something else?  Does this portrait provide new insight into the art of Lilly Martin Spencer?  Follow along as B. Scott Crawford chronicles his research on a 19th century painting and uncovers long lost secrets.   This book is sure to engage those who love art, art history, and history, as well as those who enjoy a good mystery!    

So now follow along as I have a conversation with Lilly Martin Spencer through her portrait Jane Eleanor Sherman Lacey and Her Son Edward.  This book will chronicle my investigation of this work much as if we were exploring a crime scene - I will deeply explore details of the painting and present evidence I have gathered.  In the end, an interpretation of the work will be conveyed that is diametrically opposed to the understanding of the painting that has surrounded it for more than 60 years . . . I hope you enjoy this journey, and I sincerely hope that after reading this book you will look at works of art somewhat differently than you do now.
