Phillips, Ammi - Betsey Beckwith Folk Art Portrait

Fine Art Prints of Distinction


A Museum Quality Reproduction Print of Betsey Beckwith by Ammi Phillips This folk art portrait is of a lady of the rural upper class, wife of Colonel Nathan Beckwith, whose portrait we also have. These two portraits of man and wife are the same size and make an excellent pair of pictures to put together on a wall if you collect early American folk art. This portrait was painted by the artist in 1817 and is inscribed "Betsey Beckwith" in the book she is holding on her lap. Betsey was the sister of Mary Lyon who was the founder of Mount Holyoke, the first American women's college in the United States.
