Monhegan Museum Acquires George Bellows Portrait of Museum Co-Founder as a Child
The Monhegan Museum of Art & History has acquired a 1914 painting by George Bellows (1882-1925) of Jacqueline “Jackie” Hudson (1910-2001) as a child. Jackie Hudson would later become a painter in her own right and a co-founder of the museum in 1968. The museum purchased the work at auction in July with funds donated by museum trustee Susan Bateson and her husband, Stephen S. Fuller, in honor of Edward L. Deci, director of the museum from 1984 to 2019. The painting will be on view at the museum during the summer of 2021. George Wesley Bellows (American, 1882-1925). Jackie (Jacqueline Hudson), 1914.
