Local History Talk - Portrait of a Marriage
June 21st, 7pm | 175 Parrott Avenue, Portsmouth NH 03801
F.O. Matthiessen was one of the foremost scholars of American literature of the 20th century. Russell Cheney was a well-known painter in the 1920s and 1930s in the Boston and New York art worlds. After a chance meeting aboard the ocean liner Paris in 1924, the two men remained a couple – a marriage in everything but name and legal rights – up until Cheney’s death in 1945. Scott Bane’s talk introduces Matthiessen and Cheney and their respective family backgrounds; their life together in Kittery, Maine; Matthiessen’s books; Cheney’s paintings of the Seacoast Region; and the background to researching and writing his book, A Union Like Ours: The Love Story of F.O. Matthiessen and Russell Cheney.
