Electronic Cataloging Project Entry #66

April 3, 2013

It would seem obvious that a prominent family such as the Reynolds would have various types of art and paintings hanging on their walls, but it is only recently during our current project that we are making connections to which pieces we still have that the family purchased.

By conducting provenance research we have been able to match up certain prints and paintings in our collection to items on a 1922 inventory of the house as well as through early historic photographs.
