From the Collections
Five small oil paintings of the village of North Anson were given to the Maine Historical Society in 1999. They meticulously illustrate a rural Maine village in the last quarter of the nineteenth century and as such are important additions to our painting collection, which is comprised predominately of marine subjects and portraits. The paintings are attributed to John Williams Daniels (1845-1933), who married North Anson native Alice Steward (1846-1921), in 1876.
