Curator Pick of the Month

Title: Portrait of Letitia and Lillie Bell Randell
Artist: Joseph Frédéric Charles Soulacroix
Creation Date: 1876
Origin: France
Medium: Oil on canvas

Joseph Frédéric Charles Soulacroix (1858-1933) was a French-Italian painter and sculptor who studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze (Florence). Soulacroix created romantic genre paintings of fashionable women who belonged to high society. The subjects of his paintings were often draped in velvet and fine silks, and surrounded by elegant furniture and decorations. He would include flowers and elements of nature to compliment the colors and draping of his subjects’ elegant gowns.

Welcome to the Collection

Drexel University, initially Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry, was founded on the belief that education should be both practical and cultural—and that art should be not only beautiful, but educational. On that principle, The Drexel Collection—the University’s flagship collection of art—was founded alongside the University in 1891. Today, the Collection remains a resource for historically and culturally significant works of art as Drexel University pioneers a model for the modern, urban university.
