Collection Historical Note

Marcus Mote (1817-1898) was a Quaker artist of Lebanon, Ohio and Richmond, Indiana, best known for his portraits of Quakers. He also drew two of the few existing portraits of President John Quincy Adams. A teacher at Turtle Creek School in Warren County, Ohio, he married pupil and fellow fifth generation American Quaker Rhoda Steddom in 1837. After moving to Richmond, Mote opened an academy of design there and taught drawing in its public schools. He also circulated a petition that resulted in a law authorizing the teaching of art in Indiana’s public schools.
