Landscape by George Caleb Bingham

This watercolor landscape, by the renowned St. Louis painter George Caleb Bingham, hung in the front hall of the Campbell House for nearly a century. The Campbells likely bought it in person from Bingham’s studio in St. Louis. Today the Campbell House Bingham landscape hangs in the Newark Museum in New Jersey after having been sold to a dealer at auction in 1941. A copy of the original in a similar frame hangs today in the front hall of the Campbell House Museum.
