374. The Kenosha Public Museum, Kenosha Wisconsin is the owner of the painting to the right. It is one of the oldest paintings in their collection. It is unsigned but carries the provenance "1855 Indiana Territory." The piece has suffered considerable visual and structural deterioration and has never been on view. Proper conservation will return the piece to an exhibitable condition.

The above information was entered when the painting came in for treatment. During cleaning however a reward occurred when the original artist's signature and date was discovered in the lower left quadrant.. The painting is by G. N. Frankenstein (1820-1873) and was completed in 1845.

The image is important to the museum for Bingham did a second portrait of Ream and this painting is in the museum's collection. The portrait was treated by the author and is reviewed on page 50 of this site in 2008. Ream is best known for her sculpture of Abraham Lincoln, a full-length piece completed for the rotunda of the United States Capitol building in Washington, D.C.
