The year 2020 marks the one-hundredth anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which granted millions of women in the U.S. the right to vote. The Frick is celebrating with a series of videos honoring the stories of women who made, appeared in, collected, and took care of art in this collection.

Curator Aimee Ng is continuing the series with a look at a portrait of Miss Mary Edwards, a woman who took her life and legacy into her own hands. #WhatsHerStory
