Cogswell's Grant, 60 Spring Street, Essex, Mass.
  
Join Site Manager Kristen Weiss for an in-depth look at the collection of folk art portraits at Cogswell's Grant. Discover the many families and artists represented in the house.

In the days before photography, portraits offered self-expression and family documentation, first to wealthy colonial settlers, then to the middle class. Itinerant artists of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, often self-taught, painted inexpensive portraits for rural families, and worked in a style whose charm still appeals today.
