    ill titleNewburyport, St Paul's Church and Beyond, 1860s- New (Fall, 2014)

    Richard Burke Jones has recently completed a oil on canvas, 36" x 54", entitled "St Paul's Church and Beyond - Newburyport, 1860s". It was finished in the late fall of 2014.

    Here is a close-up of the facade of the St Anna's Chapel and St. Paul's Church showing a recently married couple leaving the church to the waiting carriage and a commercial building on the corner of High and Summer Streets.




    ill titleNewburyport, Upper State Street, Newburyport, 1870s (Completed in 2013)

    The original hangs in the first floor of the Institution For Savings at 93 State Street, Newburyport near the tellers on the right. It is accessible to the public. There is an explanatory brochure at the bank that you may find interesting and informative. If you wish to place an order for a giclee print, please contact the artist at richardburkejones@gmail.com.

    The foreground area is upper State Street, Newburyport and it includes (from right to left) the Dalton Club, the Institution for Savings Bank, nineteenth-century residences and the Whitefield Church. On State Street itself there are horse and carriages including the carriage in front of the Institution waiting for the return of its passengers, attentive dogs, mother and baby carriage, the wedding at Whitefield's church with dress attendants, violinist and vocalist, and applauding guests.

    The Dalton Club is an historic colonial house at 95 State Street in Newburyport, Massachusetts. The house was built in 1746 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. Next to the Dalton Club is the Institution for Savings - the third bank in the United States to be incorporated on January 31, 1820. (The first was in Boston, the second in Salem, Massachusetts.) The bank moved to its present location in 1871.


    Rufus Sargent (1812-1886), a prominent local architect, designed the Italianate-style building. Tall, rounded-arch windows, an elevated entry door of black walnut, giant brownstone pillars, a copper balustrade and cornices, and detailing on the front fa├žade decorate the brownstone.
