Charles Robert Patterson’s Henry B. Hyde

The accomplished marine painter Charles Robert Patterson painted a narrative series of four paintings of the Downeaster Henry B. Hyde. These paintings were commissioned by John Holmes Hyde—a man who had sold his family’s shipbuilding business—to decorate his Elmhurst estate. This exhibit reunites these paintings and considers their significance both to Patterson and Hyde. Letters and news accounts reveal an interesting dynamic between an artist and patron.
