On view until late April 2013, you'll find early nineteenth-century portraitists, including Asa Park's contemporary Matthew Harris Jouett, among later artists, including still life painter William Mason Brown and genre painters Mary Spencer Nay and Lucy Diecks who aimed to document myriad aspects of Kentucky life. Our guide was David Buchta, from the Division of Historic Properties. His tour and explanation was fantastic. And, he gave us time to wander the first floor on our own. What a treat!

This trip would not have been possible without our colleague, Prof. Kincer, who chauffeured us to the mansion. Thank you, Darrell!

And, a hearty welcome, as always to Emeritus Prof. Doug Griggs who is always welcome on these tours because he's a general fan of art and because he knows American architecture.
