These are paintings of my ancestors, John Fraser Farquhar (1821-1866) and Sarah Wilson (1823-1906). I have pictures of these but I have never seen the originals and I don’t know where they are. I would love to locate them. They were in the possession of Carolyn Farquhar and my aunt says they were donated to a museum somewhere. Here are the places that do not have them: Lehigh County Historical Society and the Allentown Art Museum. I have emails in to Lafayette College and the Michener Art Museum to see if they have the art in their collections.
This first one is an oil painting. I don’t know who the artist is.
These two were drawn reportedly by John Farquhar himself, a self-portrait and a drawing of his wife.
Again, if you have any information on the whereabouts of these paintings, please leave a comment below, thanks!
