651. The Fairfield Heritage Association is the governing body for two museums: the Sherman House Museum, the birthplace of General William Tecumseh Sherman; and the Georgian Museum, a home built in 1832 as a residence for Samuel Maccracken. Both museums are located in Lancaster, Ohio, approximately forty-five minutes from Columbus. At the time, the Maccracken home  represented the best of American and Georgian architecture. Although Federal in style, an American synthesis of English Georgian, the house also has Regency features. These two portraits represent Elizabeth Reese, the sister of William and John Sherman, and her husband William Reese.

654. Eugenio Zampighi's (1859-1944) work as a photographer was geared to his painting and took place mainly in his studio with the aid of models in costume or dress of common people. The artist used the photos to create joyous images of Italian rural life which was so greatly appreciated by a large audience. The imaged picture is from the collection of Wabash College, Crawfordsville, Indiana.
