Berit M. Hattendorf examines the life and work of portrait painter Jane Stuart. In the mid-nineteenth century, as Newport became an attractive place for writers and popular as a summer resort for the wealthy, it also became a place of importance for artists and craftsmen. During this time, Jane Stuart dominated Newport portrait painting for half a century, from the 1830s until her death in 1888. Hattendorf describes this work in her article, which includes a complete catalog of known Jane Stuart paintings.
