Dutch Pinkie Coming to Anchor - Henry S. [Harry] Chase, Jr.
The Billings family had no property holdings on the seacoast. However, they collected several marine views that spoke to their interest in the work of local artists, the characteristic folkways of maritime cultures, and the evocative beauties of wild ocean landscapes.

Harry Chase, the artist of a boating scene in the Netherlands, was a native of Woodstock, and grew up on a village street not far from the Mansion. Edward Moran’s Clam Gatherers was similar in subject and style to the steel genre engravings in the Mansion collection. Many of these were made by German artists of the Dusseldorf School, and ornamented the bedrooms of the Billings children.
