Join Director of Collections and Research, Derek Heidemann and Art Conservator, Theresa Carmichael, as they take a closer look at the portraiture of New Hampshire itinerant painter, Ezra Woolson (1824-1845) within the Old Sturbridge Village Museum Collections. Not much is known about Woolson’s short career as an itinerant painter, but he started painting at a young age. The earliest painting in our collection was created when he was just 16 and the latest when he was 19. Unfortunately, Woolson passed away in 1845 at the age of 21, and only left a few portraits behind. Join us as we discuss these remaining portraits within our collection and get a better understanding of his techniques and evolution of skill over that short period of time.
