William Sidney Mount

William Sidney Mount was a noted American genre painter, living the majority of his life in Setauket, and Stony Brook, Long Island. His work aroused not only national, but also international interest. Mount's art work commented on American social and rural life. He captured his neighbors in moments of dancing, farming, fiddling, conversation, and at play. Mount was also one of the first artists to record African-Americans in a sensitive and dignified manner, at work and in play. His work drew close parallels to the thoughts and poetical works of another Long Island resident, Walt Whitman.
