Added today is a wonderfully charming and historic work by Connecticut native artist Charlotte Joan Sternberg (see biography for details of her life). A fine egg tempera on panel the scene is the Noah Bacon Homestead also known as Timberlost Farm in Middletown CT. The Homestead is a period mid 18th century center chimney home, the Bacon family was one of the founding families in Middletown – incorporated in 1650. Middletown was inhabited by the Mattabesett Indians and now is the home of Wesleylan University. Noah Bacon lived from 1745 to 1827. Charlotte captured the idyllic spring warmth in this 20th century view of a farm with horses, chickens, and geese. A young woman carries a shovel ready to plant the flowering geraniums.
