Now on view at Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS) is “She said, She said: Art and inspiration in the work of Nell Painter and Lucille Fornasieri Gold,” an exhibit that pays homage to two different but equally dynamic women sharing their view of New York through their work.

The exhibition juxtaposes two separate but related bodies of artwork — 45 photographs of Brooklyn in the 1970s and ’80s taken by legendary street photographer Lucille Fornasieri Gold, and the seven paintings they inspired by artist and historian Nell Irvin Painter. The exhibition is on view in BHS’s recently renovated Brooklyn Community Foundation Gallery through February 2015.
