WILTON, Conn. -- Art fans can learn about the checkered past of American portrait painter Ralph Earl at a luncheon lecture Thursday at the Wilton Historical Society.

Ben Colman of the Florence Griswold Museum will speak at noon Thursday, June 20, about Earl.

He painted a portrait of Roger Sherman, a patriot of the Revolution who signed the Declaration of Independence. The Wilton Historical Society owns two of Earl's paintings, which will be on display at the talk.

The Wilton Historical Society owns two Earl paintings, including the one of Mrs. Jessie Simcha Jonas Judah (Goldsmith), which he is believed to have painted while in debtor’s prison.

The program relates to objects on display in the “75 Objects/75 Years” exhibition commemorating the 75th anniversary of the historical society.

The talk is free. Attendees can bring a brown bag lunch and enjoy refreshments and dessert courtesy of the historical society. The historical society is at 224 Danbury Road.
