Group of ephemera related to artist Barton Stone "B.S." Hays (American, 1826-1914) and his family. Including sketches and prints by his family, newspaper clippings, a yearbook, and ephemera related to the College of St. Catherine.

Although Hays initially gained popularity for his portraiture - such as his painting of then-governor of Indiana, William Henry Harrison - his focus shifted to still life paintings after his move to Minneapolis and it was these realistic paintings that were his most popular. He also created panorama paintings such as his painting depicting scenes from Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin."

(Shipping dimensions) height: 3 1/2 in x width: 9 1/2 in x depth: 13 1/4 in.

Condition

The art is in overall good condition with no tears or losses. Most sheets are toned. Light wear to the ephemera as expected.
