Charles Loring Elliott (1812-1868) was one of the most prominent American portrait painters of

the 19th century. His works hang in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery in

Washington, D.C., the Everson Museum in Syracuse – and in the Skaneateles Library, where nine

are on display. Visitors to the library often ask about these portraits. Who are they? Now,

thanks to research by Sally Holbien, these former Skaneateles residents have been identified.

Dannette Davis, librarian at Seymour Library in Auburn, will present a slide show and will share

the stories of these portraits and the artist who painted them.

HISTORY: 7:30 PM at The Museum at The Creamery, 28 Hannum St.

Charles Loring Elliott (1812-1868) was one of the most prominent American portrait painters of

the 19th century. His works hang in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery in

Washington, D.C., the Everson Museum in Syracuse – and in the Skaneateles Library, where nine

are on display. Visitors to the library often ask about these portraits. Who are they? Now,

thanks to research by Sally Holben, these former Skaneateles residents have been identified.

Dannette Davis, librarian at Seymour Library in Auburn, will present a slide show and will share

the stories of these portraits and the artist who painted them.
