Picture Details

Title
This Little Pig Went to Market
Caption
This Little Pig Went to Market" was painted by artist Lily Martin Spencer in 1857. The painting is part of the Ohio Historical Society fine art collection. Spencer was born in England and raised in Marietta, Ohio. She received art training in Marietta and Cincinnati, Ohio before moving to New York in 1844. Spencer was known for her domestic genre scenes. Her original art inspired mass-produced lithographs, which appealed to women's sensibilities regarding domestic life in the second half of the 19th century (AL00778).
