496. Louis Yarwood was a scenic artist, an alderman, and Elgin, Illinois', first librarian. His unaltered Gothic Revival style home, built circa 1850, is still in existence at 373 Park Street.

497. The Haggerty Museum serves as a laboratory for learning focused on the visual arts by collecting, exhibiting and interpreting works of art in the context of the mission of Marquette University and the city of Milwaukee. The museum's exhibitions and educational programs are designed to contribute to the transformational learning of students and community members and to foster life-long learning and enjoyment of the arts. The seeds for the Haggerty Museum of Art were planted in 1889, when Rev. Stanislaus L. Lalumiere, S.J., donated Pere Marquette and the Indians by Wilhelm Lamprecht. As a separate building, the museum opened in 1984. Under the direction of present Director Wally Mason, the museum features approximately eight to nine exhibitions each year representing the diversity of work in the Permanent Collection.

499. The below left oil was signed and dated. Only the date, "1851" was easily read. The signature was presented in such a calligraphic style that is was illegible. Through careful microscope analysis, coupled with an ever-shortening process of elimination, and internet research we now know that the piece is from the hand of Abby Tyler Oakes, well established as the first female landscape artist in California. She began her career in the Northeast where this painting was painted. All four oils are owned by Knox College, Galesburg, Illinois.

500. Born on January 12, 1837 at Bolton in Lancashire, England, Thomas Moran immigrated to the United States with his family in 1844, and grew up in Philadelphia where he was apprenticed to a wood engraver. He was influenced to become a painter by his older brother, Edward, who was already an established landscape artist. He journeyed to England where he fell under the influence of J. M. W. Turner while copying his works. His first trip to the American West was in 1871 and the following year he worked in Yosemite. A versatile painter, Moran often painted in the manner of Turner and sometimes in the style of Corot. In 1922 he settled in Santa Barbara where he remained until his death on August 26, 1926. He is internationally famous for his panoramic landscapes of Yellowstone, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon. Mount Moran in the Tetons and Moran Point in Yosemite are named for him. The below oils are owned by The Hoyt Sherman Place in Des Moines, Iowa.
