Artists and writers numbered among the early settlers of Vermont during the
latter half of the 19th century. Portrait painters traveled from town to town
seeking commissions from the wealthy, while engravers were busy illustrating the
many journals and newspapers put out by Vermont's early printing presses. Folk
songs were written to both new and familiar tunes, while the early history of
Vermont was chronicled in poetry and prose. It is safe to say that art has been
a part of Vermont's culture for a long time.
