This exhibit comprises paintings and prints and features an exciting new addition to the Museum's collection.  This life-size work is a very rare example of Miss Earl's inclusion of a human figure in a painting; however, the names of the "Lady" and her dogs are unknown.  Be sure to come see this extraordinary painting and try to solve the mystery of their identities!
