"Marcia Schuyler" by Grace Livingston Hill

Grace Livingston Hill's "Marcia Schuyler" was based on a family story. It became her first big success as an author and began a career that lasted a lifetime.

While we present several of these Edward Lamson Henry images in color, they originally appeared in tinted monochrome. The web doesn't do Henry's vivid colors justice. There's nothing more amazing than standing in front of a real E. L. Henry masterpiece—the colors are breathtaking!

 

Sunday Morning (Old Church at Bruynswick)

"Marcia Passed from the Old Stone Church with the Two Aunts"

SUNDAY MORNING (OLD CHURCH AT BRUYNSWICK)
E.L.. Henry, 1898 ~ Oil on canvas, 34" x 62"

Reformed Church of Shawangunk

The subject of this painting is the Reformed Church of Shawangunk in Ulster County, New York. It is still standing. Henry painted the church with four columns, but the real church has five! He said that no church could be built that way, regardless of the fact that it was, indeed, built that way.
