Local Painter George Caleb Bingham

George Caleb Bingham (1811–1879) spent his youth in Arrow Rock, Missouri, and became one of America’s greatest nineteenth-century painters. His famous paintings of American frontier life along the Missouri River include: Fur Traders Descending the Missouri, The County Election, Stump Speaking, The Verdict of the People, and Daniel Boone Escorting Settlers through the Cumberland Gap.

At the Marshall Public Library we have numerous books and one video documentary detailing Bingham’s biography and paintings. Click the links to visit each title in our catalog:
