Silk embroidery memorial to Dickinson from Huber

Abby Wright School
South Hadley, MA c.1802

Silk embroidered memorial worked by Elizabeth (Betsey) Dickinson of Amherst, MA, the youngest daughter of Capt. Aaron Dickinson (1750-1802) and Eleanor (Morton) Dickinson (1758-1790).
The maker was a cousin of the famed poet Emily Dickinson. They lived at the same time and in the same town, so they unquestionably knew each other.

The graphic components of this silk embroidered memorial combined with the silver metallic threads on the monument and the velvet at the bottom are classic characteristics of the Abby Wright School.

Silk, watercolor, metallic threads, and velvet on silk; oval sight 13 x 11 ¾ .
