Born in West Boxford, Massachusetts to a farm family, itinerant painter Rufus Porter has been described by folk-art historian Jean Lipman as America's "chief early mural painter and one of our outstanding native artists. . . .a mobile one-man factory for original portraiture and interior decoration" (149-150).

His landscape murals earned him wide attention, and from 1824 to 1845, he completed more than 150 murals, a combination of freehand and stencils. Placed over mantles and entire wal (showing 500 of 3964 characters).
