Beatrice Pastorius Turner

Self-Portrait


On October 14, 1998, a reception, a short program and exhibition of portraits celebrated the publication of the book "BEATRICE" by Sheldon Bart.

After she was forbidden to continue her studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Beatrice Turner spent the rest of her life painting herself in her turn of the century clothing. She divided her time between her two homes in Philadelphia and Newport, Rhode Island.
