The Rufus Porter School of Wall Mural Painting

$29.95

This teaching/documentary video focuses on fourteen rooms of decorated walls in ten New Hampshire houses.  Porter and his students painted from circa 1824 to 1845 in New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts, an effort that resulted in hundreds of murals—most now lost to fire, demolition, paint or wallpaper.  The hand-painted and stenciled walls shown on this DVD are filled with colorful landscape scenes reminiscent of those in the Society’s 1813 Mason House.
