  1. Hi Jon, I love seeing these images every day and learning about the objects in use during the period. I am the curator at an 18th century historic house museum in North Carolina. Are there American paintings you can include in the mix?

  2. there is such a peaceful, orderly feel to this painting. I get the impression of women quietly going about their daily tasks, preparing this to offer guests.
