On Monday, August 1, Historic New England announced an exciting new acquisition—a painting of John Codman III by the celebrated American portraitist, John Singleton Copley. The work, which was painted around 1800 in England, has been on loan to Historic New England for nearly thirty years. The painting will be exhibited at the Codman Estate—the Codman family’s Georgian retreat in Lincoln, Massachusetts. Between 1790 and 1803, Codman helped transform the residence into an active agricultural property.
