Oil on canvas
Dimensions: 
Overall: 26 x 19 in. ( 66 x 48.3 cm )

Purchase
Object Number:

Gallery Label: 
The subject of this portrait was a well-known naturalist and writer whose first book, "Notes on Walt Whitman As Poet and Person," appeared in 1867. From 1874 until his death Burroughs traveled and lived in rural retreats in the Catskills, where he devoted much of his time to poetry and the study of nature. This portrait was probably painted from life in the Catskills, for Burroughs was a good friend of the Wheeler family and a frequent visitor at their home in Onteora.
