Features From My Visit to: The Toledo Museum of Art - PEOPLE#3

TMA (Toledo Museum of Art) is one of my favorite places in Toledo, Ohio.  I first visited this beautiful museum when I was in high school in Canada.  I grew up in the Windsor area and I was privileged to go to a high school with an advanced art program.  We actually visited the TMA twice throughout my high school career.  I had no idea when I was a teenager that I would actually marry an American and then settle in the Toledo area!  I now visit my favorite museum once a year.

I will be featuring a few pieces from the TMA each month.

This is a perfect painting to feature during the month of February for two reasons:  it depicts a beautiful snowy scene and because February is the month of love - true love is God's love (these Puritans are heading to church).

“Early Puritans of New England Going to Worship”

By George Henry Boughton (American, 1833-1905)

Look closely at the people in this painting.  What stands out as odd to you? (keep in mind that they are walking to Church).  
All of the men are armed - carrying their rifles.  
They had to protect themselves.  A quote from the artist explaining why they were armed:  "to protect themselves against the hostile Indians and the Wild Beasts of the forests."

George Henry Boughton was known for depicting Colonial life in America.
The date of this painting is 1872.
