Anne Bradstreet - Selected Archive Items

Back Back to Anne Bradstreet Activities

[1219] Anonymous, The Mason Children: David, Joanna, Abigail (1670),
courtesy of Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, gift of Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller 3rd, 1979.7.3.
This rare early New England portrait of children offers insight into the life of the merchant class. Children were considered small, sinful adults—hence the adult head-to-body ratio, clothing, and posture. The lack of sensuality reflects the religious mores and plain style of the time.

[6728] Arthur C. Haskell, Gov. Simon Bradstreet House,159 Osgood Street, North Andover, Essex County, Massachusetts (1934),
courtesy of the Library of Congress [HABS, MASS,5-ANDON,1-].
The stateliness of this house reflects the prominence of the Bradstreet family, and its clean lines and balanced composition reflect the Puritan plain-style aesthetic.
