Portrait Donated to Murfreesboro Historical Association
Bob Carr, former Murfreesboro resident now living in New Hampshire, has donated a copy of Thomas Sully’s painting of his daughter Ellen Sully Wheeler with her boys Woodbury and Sully. The original, which hung at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York for many years, was sold at auction in 2015. It is now in private hands. The copy is 3/4 of the size of the original. Mr. Carr donated the painting in honor of Mrs. Gertrude Revelle in recognition of her tireless efforts on behalf of the John Wheeler House. The gift was unveiled at the annual meeting of the Murfreesboro Historical Association on April 21, 2017.
