After Words

Women's History Cameo Appearance
after words photo HEROIC LIFE: Working from an 1883 photograph and from sittings with Susan B. Anthony, the Italian artist Pio Sotto cut a cameo of the Rochester-based women’s rights activist. The cameo—which Anthony declared “Quite good I think”—is now part of the collection of the Department of Rare Books, Special Collections, and Preservation in Rush Rhees Library. The work can be seen in the online exhibition Celebrating “A Heroic Life.”
