Hanners, George (1696-1740)
There appears to be considerable confusion over this Boston silversmith's last name. Early records show his parents were married in 1695 as "Robert Hannah and Hannah Matson." Birth records for his brother Thomas, in 1699, show the parents as "Robert and Hannah Hannah." In the July 11, 1720, edition of the Boston News-Letter, an advertisement appeared of "George Hannah, goldsmith, at his House at t he Dock-Head Boston..." In that same month and year, George was married to Rebecca Pierson and the records ...

Hassam, Childe (1859-1935) View 1 Item
In 1892, French and American Impressionism celebrated a symbolic marriage in Theodore Robinson's painting, "The Wedding March". The actual wedding taking place was that of American Impressionist Theodore Butler to Suzanne Hoschede, stepdaughter of Claude Monet, arguably the high priest of French Impressionism.

Born in Pennsylvania in 1819, Martin Johnson Heade, was taught figure painting by the Quaker "primitive" Edward Hicks and worked as a hack portraitist until the 1850's when he met and fell under the influence of Frederic Church and became a member of the later Hudson River School. Church showed him how expressive light in a landscape could be. But soon, rather than the romantic sweep and majestic scale of Church's work, Heade was painting minimalist landscapes of haunting beauty, joining a new group ...
