A Dutch-born painter, William Machen did portraits, landscapes, historical scenes and still lifes.  He emigrated from Holland to the United States in 1847, and in the 1880s was in Michigan where he taught art at Detroit College and and Sacred Heart Convent at Grosse Point, Michigan.  For nearly thirty years, he worked in Toledo and "may have been the most prolific artist in Ohio's history." (Haverstock)

Essentially self-taught, he began winning silver medals at the Ohio State Fa (showing 500 of 1236 characters).
