What a wonderful way to begin the 2019 NADFAS art lectures. The hall was full to capacity, to hear the eloquent and immensely knowledgeable Anne Sebba illustrate the hard-hearted approach to marriage across the Atlantic. However, although these marriages rarely brought happiness to either party, they did provide much needed money for various and varied projects. On a light-hearted note, Anne assured us that not all was lost and the second marriages for the heiresses, which were love matches, were happy and successful.
