More About this Item


Description: Summer at Campobello S. Mullins (American 20th century) This is a watercolor of Campobello Island during the 1930's. This was President Franklin Roosevelt's summer home where he "got away" from his tasks and enjoyed his family and friends. He was surely aware of this lovely quiet part of his private retreat. Medium: Watercolor Date: Circa 1930's Signed: l/r "S. Mullins" in cloverleaf Origin: American Size: Sight: 21 x 14 1/2 Frame: 32 x 26 1/2" Frame: Framed & Glazed Notes: Now known as the FDR summer home, the “cottage” was built in 1897 for Mrs. Hartman Kuhn, of Boston. Mrs. Kuhn developed a fondness for Eleanor when Franklin and Eleanor summered at his mother’s cottage next door. A provision in Mrs. Kuhn’s will offered her cottage to FDR’s mother, Sara, for $5000.00. Sara purchased the furnished cottage and 5 acres of land in 1909. Sara gave the cottage to Franklin and Eleanor. The growing family spent summers in the cottage from 1909 to 1921. Franklin altered the design of the house in 1915, when he added a new wing to provide additional space for his growing family. Condition: Painting is fine. Minor edge wear to frame Literature: Beloved Island: Franklin & Eleanor and the Legacy of Campobello Klein, Jonas
