In this painting, we see a beautiful young woman in her silky white wedding gown with a long white veil secured by a crown of flowers. The woman was Harriet McGilvery Dunbar and the artist created this painting sometime after Harriet passed away at the age of 22. During this program, we will take a close look at the painting, discuss mourning and remembrance in Victorian culture, and also examine a hair wreath.
