415. These three oils are owned by the Springfield Art Association in Springfield, Illinois. The Association oversees the historic Edwards Place home. The home is the oldest home in Springfield on its original foundation. The wonderfully preserved Italianate mansion was a center for social activity at the time. Prominent citizens and politicians such as Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas were entertained at lavish dinner parties there. The center image depicts Ninian Edwards (1775-1833) who served Illinois as its Territorial Governor, a United States Senator and also its Governor.
