The Departing Guests
Jennifer Koppenhaver (04/02/2014)
I bought this at an auction recently. It's really fragile. Thanks for the info on it. Really interesting.

On the Homewood Campus of Johns Hopkins University. Homewood Museum offers visitors the chance to explore diverse interests in tremendous depth and provides an intimate look at life in early-19th-century Baltimore. The museum's collections consist of fine and decorative arts objects representative of the furnishings during the Carroll family’s occupancy (1775–1825). Some works have direct affiliation with the Carroll family. The majority of the collection is American, with a strong concentration in high-quality Baltimore furniture of the period. English ceramics, silver, and furniture, as well as items of Chinese and French manufacture, are reflective of the imports available in early-19th century Baltimore. Portions of Homewood's fine and decorative art collections are represented online in the Johns Hopkins University Cultural Properties Database.

Departing Guests - Homewood

"Departing Guests" is a social scene recreated by A. W. Thomason. It is the home of Charles Carroll of Carrollton (1737 - 1832) located in SE Baltimore. Carroll was Maryland statesman, signer of the Declaration of Independence, Senator and wealthy land owner. He was the last surviving signer and the wealthiest of the signers. This lithograph hung on the wall over my parents' living room sofa in Baltimore from 1948 until Mom's passing in 1999, at which time I hung it in my foyer. It is thought to be a printing of the original sold in mass by a department store chain. Perhaps Hutzler's, Hoschild Kohn, Montgomery Ward or Sears Roebuck.

It seems as though many of us have this particular print. Therefore, I believe the value to be very low. Perhaps $5-$10.00.

I just realized the posting was from 2006, but does anyone have information of the piece Dave described? ??? Inn maybe it's name... Or Dave if you're out there any insight? Help... searching to no avail... is it hopeless... Thanks for taking the time to read this (if somebody--anybody does)!!! Good-day

Departing Guests Print

I have a large color print of the Departing Guests by Thompson that is mounted on cardboard. At the bottom of the picture is printed the following: "Copyright, printed by the New York Graphic Society" on the other bottom corner is stated "New York Historic Society, New York" I don't know if the print has any great value other than is esthetic beauty, but if anyone can shed light on this question, I'd appreciate it.

Dave (04/07/2006)
Hello - I found what I believe to be an orginal piece of art from this artist signed in the left hand corner and dated 1892. The art is in black and white, possibly an etching (?) and displays 2 colonial looking figures (1 on horseback looks siminlar to George Washington) 2nd figure has dismounted from his horse and is knocking on what could be an inn with what appears to be a walking stick. Artwork is not titled and was wondering if anyone possibly knew the title or where there might be a full listing of Wordsworth Thompsons works? Thanks Dave
