Guided Tour & Lecture

by Museum Curator Bernadette Rogoff

Sunday, July 28

Between 1819 and 1828, traveling artist Micah Williams (1782-1837) made repeated visits to Monmouth County to produce dozens of pastel portraits of local farmers, doctors, businessmen, and their families. Williams is recognized as one of America’s early portrait artists, yet little research has been completed on this profoundly talented man. The Monmouth County Historical Association collection contains twenty-two pastel portraits by this artist.

New Brunswick, Middlesex County, resident Williams produced hundreds of vibrant portraits during his over twenty-year career, many of which are in numerous American museums and in private collections across the country. For further information, please contact Museum Curator Bernadette M. Rogoff at 732-462-1466, ext. 13.
