The Museum of the Albemarle will host the next History for Lunch on Wednesday, May 3, 2023, at 12 p.m. in the Gaither Auditorium.
Michael L. Marshall, author and researcher of southern decorative arts and local history, will discuss the works of the itinerant portrait artist Leopold Paul Unger.
The recently acquired circa 1852 portrait of Gaston Pool currently being conserved is believed to have been one of his works.
Unger, who painted widely in several states, is known to have painted portraits of members of several other families from northeastern North Carolina, including the Leigh and Skinner families of Perquimans County.
Come and discover local works of Unger through this informative lecture.
The Museum will offer History for Lunch in-person and through Zoom. Register in advance through the Museum’s Facebook page or website to receive a link to attend the lecture virtually.
The virtual program is supported by Friends of the Museum of the Albemarle.
