Most widely held works by Thomas Hovenden
Thomas Hovenden : his life and art by Anne Gregory Terhune( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A realistic genre painter and recorder of everyday activities such as those involving home and family, Hovenden had a particular gift for choosing subjects with wide recognition and appeal. His work reflects a Victorian ethos; unlike many artists of the time, however, Hovenden's work featured African American subjects in domestic settings. His firm belief in sentiment and beauty as the goals of artistic pursuits is evident in the nostalgic paintings for which he is best known, such as The Last Moments of John Brown, in which Brown is depicted stopping on his way to the gallows to kiss a young black child."
