Durham exhibit features renowned artists

Posted By on Sun, Nov 11, 2012 at 11:00 AM

It's not a long shot to say that Claribel and Etta Cone — two upper class sisters who resided in Baltimore, Md., during the Gilded Age — had good taste in art. The socialites frequently crossed the pond to Europe where they bought works by artists who had not yet been labeled "masters" (but would be later).
