IMPORTANT AMERICAN FOLK ART FROM THE COLLECTION OF BOBBI AND RALPH TERKOWITZ
In 1817 Brewster enrolled in the Connecticut Asylum for the Education and Instruction of Deaf and Dumb Persons in Hartford (Brewster was born deaf). There he learned methods of non-verbal communication. He returned to Maine in 1820 and resumed his career in painting portraits.
Beginning in 1805, he often signed and dated his portraits and gave up painting large compositions and concentrated on busts and half length portraits such as the example of Matthew and Lucinda Robbin.
