Lot Essay

James H. Minton (1816-1893) was the brother of Hannah Maria Minton Da Lee (1813-1890). Hannah married Richard W.M. Da Lee (1809-1868) in 1832, the brother of Justus (1793-1878). Justus and Richard likely worked together along with Justus' son Amon (1820-1879). For further information on the Da Lee family and their art see Suzanne and Michael Payne, "To Please the Eye: Justus Da Lee and His Family," Folk Art (Winter, 2004), pp. 46-57.
