The Park Home Collection
The Park Home Collection showcases artworks dating from the late 18th century in to the 20th century. The largest group of paintings in the collection features landscape and farm animals. The best known paintings in the collection are two stunning still lifes by Severin Roesen.
- Severin Roesen (1814-1872), Still Life with Fruit. Signed. 36” x 51”. Oil on Canvas.
- Severin Roesen (1814-1872), Still Life with Fruit and Flowers. Signed. 36” x 51”. Oil on Canvas.
In addition to the paintings, the collection also features sculpture such as bronzes of David and Psyche and antique furniture. The Victorian furniture in The Park Home Collection mostly represents Rococo Revival (French Style) or Renaissance Revival styles.
The paintings, sculpture and furniture was collected by William Budd Stuart (1866-1951) and furnished The Park Home, which Stuart opened in 1940, a long-term boarding home where many Williamsport ladies spent their later years. The residents enjoyed these gracious adornments.
Today, residents of The Meadows, A Park Home Personal Care Community, have the opportunity to enjoy the collection that adorns the walls and hallways of the community.
