Winterthur Paintings

How The Collection Came About About Winterthur

Winterthur is a country estate nestled in the rolling hills of the Brandywine River valley of northern Delaware on the east coast of the United States. It was the home of Henry Francis du Pont (1880-1969). Today the estate’s 1,000 acres encompass a mansion of 175 rooms filled with 85,000 objects that were made and used in America between 1640 and 1860, a beautiful garden of more than 60 acres, and a research center for the study of American decorative arts and antiques.

Michael John Hunt is a licensee of the Winterthur Museum and the collection of paintings shown here is work in progress. This area of our website will be regularly updated until the collection is complete.
