"The Nativity of Truth centers upon a youthful female dressed in white holding a quill pen which she has just dipped into the inkwell... She is preparing to write into a large volume headed TRUTH.." Created at a time when throngs of Europeans were immigrating the the United States in search of opportunity, the painting includes volumes of art, science, philosophy and other writings symbolizing the influence Europe will have on this young nation. The painting was traced by Richard Kugler of the New Bedford Whaling Museum to a sale on January 8, 1853. Provenance: Private Collection. Literature: Kugler, Richard.
