Ring a Hunter’s Peal! Identifying and saving a 110+ year-old painting by a Connecticut artist.

The title comes from Shakespear’s somewhat overlooked, Titus Andronicus which we thought was fitting for an even more overlooked piece of art.

Read the story of how an old loose canvas painting was identified, the story of the artist, and how the work was ultimately rescued.  This painting was also leveraged as a teaching opportunity for one of the WCSU Archives’ student assistants, Ava Westervelt, when the pandemic made leveraging anything a challenge.

Thanks to Associate Dean of Libraries at WestConn, Veronica Kenausis, for facilitating this work.   Thanks to Ava and Assistant Archivist Stacy Haponik for their research and work on this online exhibit.
