MIA – Missing artwork from Schenectady’s Past

The Schenectady County Historical Society is planning an exhibit “Faces of Schenectady 1715-1750” which will include the known portraits of Schenectady residents of the period. The Society is looking for several portraits known to exist but unlocated.  Does anyone know their whereabouts. The portraits are Barent Vrooman circa 1730, John Dunbar and his wife Jeanette Egmont  Schermerhorn circa 1720 and Cornelius(?) Van Dyke circa 1720.  The Society would also like to know if descendants or collectors have other portraits of Schenectady residents that fit into the 1715-1750 time frame. If you have questions or any information to provide please contact Ona Curran, Guest Curator of the exhibit  or Kate Weller, Curator of Collections at the Society.
