Get a "behind the scenes" look at the Biggs Museum's newest acquisition - currently on view - which reunited the portraits of a prominent pair just in time for Valentine's Day!

The new acquisition of a portrait by renowned artist Charles Willson Peale depicts Mrs. Jane Hunter Ewing and is a companion piece to the Peale portrait of Jane's husband, Maskell Ewing. The dual portraits were commissioned and created in 1787 and 88 and for centuries they were passed down through generations of the Ewing family. In 1992, however, the portraits were separated at auction. The Biggs is now thrilled to be able to reunite this pair after over two decades of separation.
