Ruth Starr Rose: The Importance of the Artist


In the third and last special coverage segment of the art exhibition Ruth Starr Rose (1887-1965): Revelations of African American Life in Maryland and the World, the Spy continues with a discussion of the artist herself.

While Rose exhibited at institutions including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, she remains in relative obscurity. The Spy spends time in this segment talking to art conservationist Ken Milton, who was the first to discover Rose’s work, and the descendants of her subjects, to understand how remarkable her work has become over the years.
