Highlights of the Museum's Collection

Landscape, Congregational Church
Adelaide Deming
Litchfield, Connecticut, c. 1920
Oil on canvas
Collection of the Litchfield Historical Society

A favorite of Deming's, this view appears in her paintings at least three times. Yet none of the paintings show the town as it looked in 1920: the artist altered the placement of the buildings to suit her creative vision.

One version of this painting hung prominently over the mantlel of the painter's home on North Street. Today, two examples are in the collection of the Litchfield Historical Society, and a third is in a private collection
