Enjoy a gallery talk by Randy Rhea about the artist John Houston Mifflin (Thomasville’s Plantation Portrait detailing his life, career, and Thomasville connections. In 1840, the itinerant Pennsylvania-born painter brought his skills to Thomasville where he painted portraits of several local plantation owners including Harriet and James Joseph Blackshear of Cedar Grove (Susina), Sophronia and Richard Mitchell of Fair Oaks, and Elisabeth and Thomas Bratton Winn of Winnstead. These six portraits, and what may be a portrait of the artist himself, are currently on display in the Museum.
