"Compared with other locations across New York state and across the nation, the County's historic portraiture is impressive, rich, and varied."
--Historian, Ruth Piwonka
Columbia County's painted portraiture legacy spans more than three centuries of historically significant or artistically important works by both self-taught, naïve, and itinerant painters, as well as important artists of the time, and including some of the earliest works in America.
