Nell Painter, Scholar/Historian/Author/Artist, Revisited
Meet award winning scholar, historian, author, artist Nell Painter, the Edwards Professor of American History, Emerita at Princeton University. Her acclaimed works of history include, “Standing at Armageddon,” “Sojourner Truth, “and the New York Times bestseller, “The History of White People.” But her most recent book is all about second chapters. Old in “Art School: A Memoir of Starting Over,” chronicles Nell‘s return to the classroom as an undergrad to study painting, following her retirement from Princeton. Needless to say, we cover a lot of territory in this conversation with such an accomplished, fascinating, creative woman.
