Thomas Sully, ?Daniel Wadsworth,? 1807. Oil on canvas. Gift of William P. Wadsworth, 1976.79
The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art was founded by Daniel Wadsworth, one of the first major American art patrons. Daniel Wadsworth originally planned to establish a ?Gallery of Fine Arts,? but he was persuaded to create an atheneum, a term popular in the 19th century used to describe a cultural institution with a library, works of art and artifacts, devoted to learning history, literature, art, and science.
