Faces of Chester County Exhibit

Now through November, gaze into the recent and distant past of Chester County through the people captured in painted portraits. Before Facebook, paintings revealed people, their settings and artistic styles of their era. An extensive collection of portraits in the Chester County Historical Society museum collection spans two centuries of men, women and children who lived here, opening windows into the lives of ordinary and extraordinary people. Some are important because they are rare images of people before the invention of cameras. Others reflect the artists’ attempts to convey the personalities of their subjects long after photography could capture precise features. Most of the examples on view in this colorful installation depict Chester County people. A few paintings depict people from other places by Chester County artists. For more information on the exhibit visitĀ www.chestercohistorical.org or click here.
