About the Portraits

Thomas Gainsborough’s 1776 oil painting of a teenaged St. George depicts him just before he shipped out for New York to fight against the growing American Revolution. The portrait is on loan to the Museum from Australia’s National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne).

Hugh Douglas Hamilton’s 1795 oil painting shows a grief-stricken St. George mourning at his wife’s tomb. Hamilton painted this portrait as a movement for Irish independence, which St. George opposed, was on the rise. The portrait is on loan to the Museum from National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin.

New Exhibit Opening at the Museum in Freehold, NJ

Bruce Springsteen will be the subject of a unique exhibition at the Museum in Freehold next fall.  “Springsteen:  His Hometown” will take a comprehensive look at the rock icon’s life and his impact on music and culture. It will be the largest exhibition drawn from the artifacts of The Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music at Monmouth University (The Archives) ever to be mounted in the Boss’s home state.  Freehold is, of course, the town he called home from his birth until his late teens. The exhibit’s unveiling will coincide with the artist’s 70th birthday as well as the centennial of Freehold Borough.
