Robert Throckmorton, retired firefighter.  NEW!

This painting is in the Central Ohio Fire Museum.

 ---This is adapted from a print of the painting  Hallway Men by Rick Coey

If you would like to see this painting in person, visit the Central Ohio Fire Museum in Columbus, Ohio.  I took my grandson to see the museum's collection of antique trucks and memorabilia May 28, 2008 and noticed the painting.   From what a volunteer could tell me, this photo commemorates the two founders of the museum and the Robert Throckmorton (retired) depicted above has a son also a firefighter.  The artist is Rick Coey, a Columbus firefighter.  Here is a photo by Gary Royer, who kindly gave permission for use here.  Check the left upper corner for the painting as displayed.  It is in the northeast corner of the museum main area and is quite large.

Oliver Hazard Perry Throck Morton

On the left, by James Forbes, c. 1800-?, oil, hangs in Indiana lieutenant governor's inner office.  On the right, by T. C. Steele, c. 1916 from photo, hangs in Indiana governor's inner office.  Information thanks to Indiana Historical Bureau.


             Elizabeth Throckmorton, wife of Sir Walter Raleigh

This is alleged at one time to have been hanging   in the House of Burgesses in Williamsburg. Virginia cousin Pamela Throckmorton reports:  "Painting of Lady Elizabeth Throckmorton, which hung in the Capital from the time I was a child, no longer is believed to be she. I located it in storage three years ago while searching for the painting. Painting believed to be Lady Elizabeth is in Ireland (Lisemore?)and bears no resemblance to the painting in Williamsburg so long believed to be the wife of Sir Walter Raleigh."

Elizabeth Throckmorton, Abbess


        Oil by Nicholas de Largilliere (1729), of nun who became Mother Superior of  an
        Augustinian order in Paris. Thanks go to Mary Pat Madden (mother of my
        daughter-in-law) of Indianapolis for bringing this to my attention. See picture
        and provenance at the National Gallery of Art (USA).

        This portrait was selected for the cover of  The Journal of the American Medical
Feb. 2000.  (JAMA Vol. 283 No. 5,  February 2, 2000,  commentary
        by M. Therese Southgate, MD).

                  Hans Holbein. Portrait of Mrs Pemberton.   c. 1535. 
                Vellum mounted on playing card.   Victoria and  Albert
                Museum, London, UK.  Born about 1526, she married

Thomas  (or possibly Robert) Pemberton about 1556. 
                This attributed birthdate would suggest the portrait was
                actually later. Or the birth earlier.
