About The Art

The Butler’s 18th-century collection starts with the earliest painting in the museum: Portrait of Catherine Ten Broeck (1719) by Nehemiah Partridge, and with two paintings from 1757: Joseph Badger’s Portrait of Mr. Daniel Rea and John Singleton Copley’s Portrait of Mrs. Daniel Rea & Child. In the James Gallery, a grouping of works by the Hudson River School painters is shown with other 18th & 19th-century works, including a major oil by Fitz Henry Lane and canvases by Thomas Cole and Severin Roesen. The very popular Saint Nicholas, by Robert Weir, and Rembrandt Peale’s George Washington are also featured.
