Listing by Artist
The Billings family’s home on Madison Avenue in New York was hung with French landscapes of the Barbizon School, and other European and exotic views. That collection was dispersed in the 1920s. However, several European views integral to the Vermont home together with a few from the New York house, survive at the Mansion.

A small romantic Arcadian view by Thomas Cole provides a counterpoint to his larger American view of Niagara Falls. Robert C. Minor’s pastoral vistas in England and Sanford Gifford’s luminous view of the lagoons of Venice are supplemented by several small Barbizon studies of peasants and flocks. The Rockefellers added a Bierstadt view of The Matterhorn to the collection; Laurance Rockefeller had climbed the Matterhorn as a young man.
