Artwork description from The Metropolitan Museum of Art (© Copyright - The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

This painting was included in a collection of Perry’s works and memorabilia in 1944. It resembles other works by him in technique. All the heads in the picture are hidden, including those of the dog on the right side of the porch and the horse on the stud card tacked to the clapboard wall of the building, which is identified as the “National Hotel” in the sign partially visible in the upper left corner. The work’s title comes from the abolitionist newspaper seen to the left of center, which was published with this masthead in Lexington, Kentucky, from 1846 to 1849.
