Vose, Seth Morton

(1831–1910) art dealer; born in Stoughton, Mass. He bought the Westminster Art Gallery, Providence, R.I. (c. 1850), and by 1852 was importing paintings by Corot, thus introducing the Barbizon School of painters to America. He later opened another gallery in Boston that is still run by his descendants.
