American Folk Portraits

Baby in Red Chair

Ongoing exhibit

This exhibition of folk art portraits in the Gladys and Franklin Clark Foundation Gallery will highlight the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum’s superb collection of primarily 19th-century images of children, adults, and families. The exhibition focuses on the period 1700–1850 and includes old favorites such as Baby in Red Chair, one of the earliest pictures to enter the collection, as well as more recent additions, such as a group portrait of the Smith family of Richmond, Virginia. This large collection offers a rich and diverse look at a period before photography changed the way people saw each other and themselves.
