From "A Family Collects: Paintings and Sculpture from the Codman House," Concord Museum, 1993-1994: Thomas Hinckley is best known for bucolic scenes, most of which he painted near his home in Milton, Mass. This active barnyard scene depicts the farm in Dorchester, Mass., where the Codmans' grandparents, the Bradlees, and their family spent the summers in the mid nineteenth century. Hinckley's journal records that James Bowdoin Bradlee paid him $100 for this painting. In exhibit "Dairy to Doorstep: The Story of the New England Milkman" October 20, 2001 to March 3, 2002 at the Museum of Our National Heritage in Lexington, MA.
