Wallace Nutting (1861 – 1941) was a U.S. minister, photographer, artist, and antiquarian, who is most famous for his photography -with his atmospheric photographs spurring the Colonial Revival style. He also was an accomplished author, lecturer, furniture maker, antiques expert and collector.

Nutting started taking pictures in 1899 whilst on long bicycle rides in the countryside. In 1904, he opened the Wallace Nutting Art Prints Studio on East 23rd Street in New York and after a year moved his business to a farm in Southbury, Connecticut. Nutting authored several books about the scenic beauties of New England, the United Kingdom, and Ireland. In the peak of his business he employed about two-hundred colourists to work solely on his photographs, selling over ten million pictures over his lifetime.
