This still life was painted by C.E.S. Wood, an author, civil liberties advocate, artist, soldier, and attorney. The painting hung in the dining room of the artist’s home, and hangs in Pittock Mansion’s Dining Room today.
July 15 – Nov. 12
Pittock Mansion’s collections include artifacts whose histories are rarely told: a glass plate purchased from Tiffany’s bargain bin at the height of the Depression, a toy swing Governor Tom McCall played with as a child, a still life painting by Oregon free spirit and activist C.E.S. Wood. In this exhibit, explore the histories of lesser known, but equally compelling, objects.
