Biographical / Historical:
New York and Ohio painter Lilly Martin Spencer (1822-1902) was known for her popular portrait paintings and humorous domestic genre scenes.

Spencer was born Angelique Marie Martin in England to French parents, Giles and Angelique Martin, who were followers of the French social critic Charles Fournier. The family came to New York in 1830, moved to Marietta, Ohio, in 1833 and, in 1845, co-founded the communal settlement, Trumbull Phalanx, near Braceville, Ohio. In 1848, after her marriage to Benjamin Spencer at the age of 22, Spencer returned to New York. She achieved much success as a painter and was the main breadwinner for her family while giving birth to thirteen children, seven of whom survived to adulthood. The family moved several times, to Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio; Newark, New Jersey; and Highlands and Poughkeepsie, New York.

Date:
1853-1959
Scope and Contents:
In addition to biographical material this series contains scattered documentation relating to different aspects of Spencer's life and career. There are five calling cards and a card with Spencer's signature; a certificate for a silver medal awarded for Spencer's painting Power of Fashion; exhibition invitations and tickets including a member's ticket to the 1860 National Academy of Design annual exhibition, and Spencer's identity card for the 1876 International Exhibition in Philadelphia; and legal documentation of Spencer's 1857 purchase of real estate in Newark, New Jersey, and a document granting power of attorney in 1901.

A folder of notes and writings by Spencer includes an 1858 list of her pictures for a raffle, a poem about her Hudson River home, and a fragment of a notebook with a "List of subscribers" for a photograph of Spencer's painting, Truth Unveiling Falsehood. Records related to Spencer's membership in the professional women's association, Sorosis, include documentation of her election as a member in 1869, and invitations to events. Records relating to Truth Unveiling Falsehood include published descriptions of the painting, a poem and a letter written by unidentified people in response to the picture, and a photograph of the painting by A. J. Daniels of London, England, where it was probably sold by Spencer's daughter, Lilly Spencer Redding, circa 1914. Also found is a lithograph by A. Sirouy.

Other posthumous records include a folder of receipts for storage of Spencer's paintings in various warehouses; and records related to Campus Martius Museum, including a list of Spencer's records given to the museum by the Ohio State Archaeological and Historical Society in Columbus, Ohio; a typescript of "examples of work to be on display" at the museum including transcribed letters and printed material relating to Spencer; and genealogical notes on the Martin family.
