Rufus Porter was an intinerant wall muralist who traveled throughout New England in the early to mid-1800's painting murals in homes and taverns. His murals were of landscapes characterized by large trees in the foreground reaching from floor to ceiling, with several levels of diminishing subject matter to create his own unique perspective. 
 
Rufus Porter was truly the father of modern American folk art and his influence can be readily seen in the works of many modern folk artists.
