"John Brown's Portrait" 384


"John Brown's Portrait" by Warren F. Broderick, 

Archivist Emeritus New York State Archives June 12, 2011
 In 1857 an obscure portrait painter named Louis Ransom opened a studio on busy Genesee Street in downtown Utica.  Three years later Ransom would stun his friends and others from Central New York when he completed his life-sized and life-like depiction of John Brown being led to the gallows.
Broderick will present an illustrated program on Ransom and his famous painting.
