Like many families of means, they used the services of a local artist to have their likenesses painted, since photography as we know it did not exist. For many years, this artist was thought to be Noah North, but recent scholarship points to Milton Hopkins, with whom North probably apprenticed. Painting was not Hopkins' sole occupation. As well, he farmed and was a carriage and sign painter, and was involved in anti-Masonic, abolitionist, and temperance politics. Pierrepont Lacey was born in 1832, and like many little boys, he probably was not comfortable posing for a painting in his best clothes. The family dog, Gun, most likely didn't stand still for long, either, so it may have been quite a challenge for the artist to capture the likenesses of boy and dog. When Pierrepont was fifteen, his family moved to Marshall, Michigan. He grew up, married, and was the father of one son. Milton Hopkins moved to Ohio shortly after this portrait was painted, where he continued to paint portraits and work for the Underground Railroad. [Gallery label text, 2000] Like many young boys, Pierrepont Lacey was probably not comfortable posing for a painting dressed in his best suit and red shoes. Gun, the family dog, was most likely a restless subject for the artist to capture, as well. There are six known portraits by Hopkins showing children dressed in their finest clothes, often accompanied by their dogs. All of the children’s parents were connected to the artist through their activities in anti-Masonic, abolitionist, and temperance politics. MAG’s nearly full-size portrait is one of the most engaging likenesses done by Hopkins and has become an American folk art icon.

Waters often placed her sitters in the foreground of an outdoor setting, looking out at the viewer with a gaze while holding something in their hands. Waters was born in Binghamton, New York. She taught herself to paint and traveled in the region of Pennsylvania and New York’s Southern Tier from 1843 to 1845.

Family tradition states that the sofa was made by a local cabinetmaker from lumber cleared off property owned by Culver. The furniture style is called Empire because it was influenced by French design; it was popularized in the 1820s by a furniture designer named Duncan Phyfe whose workshop was in New York City. Two Rochester streets are named for Culver: Culver Road and Oliver Street. The 1815 section of Culver’s home still stands today on East Boulevard, where it was moved from its original location at the corner of East Avenue and Culver Road.

Cheatham had died and his sister was throwing his stuff away. I doubt that anyone exists who would either have a clue about him or who would care that his work was depicted on our website. I suspect that he was an outsider artist who was creating these wonderful things for himself. I only know of the two that we have and one other owned by the donor.

Here, the carver has included all the traditional elements arranged in a simple yet effective way, using few colors and creating the illusion of depth. Gold paint illuminates the baby, above whom an angel watches protectively. Like the carver of the Santo [73.9], or the artisan who built the Tramp Art Shrine [87.4], Oliver Cheatham was an artist who expressed his religious devotion with wood and paint. Little else is known about him. The donor, Reverend Romig, came across a few pieces of his work on a sidewalk in New York City; the artist had died, and his family was throwing his things away. Fortunately, Reverend Romig recognized the beauty of the work, retrieved what he could, and kindly donated two pieces to the Memorial Art Gallery: The Nativity and The Last Supper [99.14], which is being conserved.
