Leading the Field: Ellen Emmet Rand Exhibit

Ellen Emmet Rand was a professional and successful portrait artist for over three decades. In 1936, on the heels of painting an official presidential portrait of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Rand held a solo exhibition on Sporting Portraits at The Sporting Gallery & Bookshop in New York City. Her subjects included well-known sporting figures such as Fletcher Harper, Master of the Orange County Hunt; Dr. Howard Collins, Master of Millbrook Hunt; and Charlotte Noland, founder of the prestigious Foxcroft School and Joint-Master of Middleburg Hunt. The exhibition Leading the Field: Ellen Emmet Rand and accompanying catalog gather together many of the same paintings from Rand’s 1936 show and more, to bring to life the stories, personalities, and relationships behind these works.
