Painting by William Sidney Mount. Lithograph by Alphonse Leon Noel. Lithograph colored by hand, 1849.
Published by Goupil & Company, New York City. Archivally matted in a period frame.
William Sidney Mount, the noted American genre painter, lived the majority of his life in Stony Brook, Long
Island and New York City. His work aroused not only national, but also international interest. The image,
“Music is Contagious,” shows Mount’s interest in the power of music and its instruments, but also the
African-American boy outside the barn door keeping the beat and rhythm with his makeshift drumsticks.
One of Mount’s most powerful American genre images.
