Adopt a Painting Program
The Historical Society has begun a process of conserving its important paintings collection with the help of our members and supporters. In 2009, four paintings and their historic frames were repaired and cleaned, including the portrait of Captain Stanhope pictured here. For a modest investment, generally under $2,000, each painting was adopted by a donor whose generosity is now recorded as part of the permanent catalog record for the work.
Adopt a Painting participants include:
Roger King Fine Arts
Newport Gas Lights
The Daughters of the American Revolution
