601. Marcus Mote (1817-1898) was born into a Quaker family in 1817 near Waynesville, Ohio. He was a self taught artist who, as a child, made his own paints and drawing materials from charcoal and natural plant dyes.  His local Quaker Meeting did not believe in drawing and painting and threatened to kick Marcus out of their church. Fortunately his family was able to convince the church of their son's God given talent. In 1837, he moved to Lebanon, Ohio.  For years he had a studio across the street from The Golden Lamb Hotel and in 1843 he drew former President John Quincy Adams picture there. The hotel is still in existence today. After moving to Richmond, Indiana, Mote opened an academy of design and taught drawing in its public schools. He also circulated a petition that resulted in a law authorizing the teaching of art in Indiana’s schools. The below oils were brought in for treatment by the Richmond Art Museum, Richmond, Indiana.

604.  The Scholte House, Pella, Iowa, built in the winter and spring of 1847-1848, was the fulfillment of a promise Dominie Hendrik Scholte made to his wife Mareah to alleviate her homesickness and disappointment. He had promised to build her a house with all the comforts of the home she had left in The Netherlands. The last Scholte descendant to live in the house was Leonora Gaass Hettinga. She gave the house to the Pella Historical Society in 1979 for use as a museum. The below family portraits  are from the hand of G. H. Nollen.
