Drawing on original research, Grace Hudson Museum’s current exhibit explores the art and relationships linking these three esteemed artists over several decades.
Grotto Geyser, Yellowstone, 1891 by Grafton Tyler Brown
This exhibit explores the intertwining careers of Museum namesake Grace Carpenter Hudson (1865-1937), her one-time sweetheart Edward Espey (1860-1889), who died of Hodgkin’s lymphoma at age 28, and Grafton Tyler Brown (1841-1918), the first professional African American artist working in the West, who later married Espey’s widow. It includes works from the Grace Hudson Museum, Oakland Museum of California, Crocker Art Museum, the California Historical Society, and numerous private lenders.
