Biography David Walcutt
David Broderick Walcutt made his living as a painter, draftsman, and engraver. After a few years in Cincinnati, he gravitated to Paris, where, in 1855, he became the first Ohioan ever to have a painting hung in the Salon. (It is known today as Hocking Valley Picnic and is in the Ohio Historical Society's collection.) Back in Columbus, he and another brother, Charles, opened a "museum" of waxworks, taxidermy specimens, and oil paintings.
