“The Seasons”

This is a series of paintings by Neil Eckerson, the first president of the Marlborough Free Library. He painted four pictures of local women. Each group was set in one of the four seasons. The notes were taken from a document dated 1978. These paintings were done in the 1920’s.The Seasons JPEG

  1. Thank you for this page! I am one of the grand-daughters of Louise Dal Vechia Signorelli, and went to see the portrait a couple of years ago at the Library. Everyone was very nice at the library. My grandmother grew up in Marlboro. Am very interested in learning about history of the area..My uncle, her eldest son, told me my grandfather used to cut across the river when it was frozen to visit her at the family homestead when they were “courtin”.
