576. John Elwood Bundy (1853-1933) was part of the Richmond School of Indiana painters and Richmond's premier artist,. He was born in Guilford County, North Carolina and was raised on a farm in Morgan County, Indiana near Monrovia. He spent nearly a decade in New York City as a portraitist but decided to focus on landscape painting. He worked in both oil and watercolor, and much of his subject matter came from Wayne County, Indiana.

In 1888, he moved to Richmond and for eight years headed the Art Department at Earlham College where he taught drawing and painting. During that time, a book of his etchings, Fond Recollections, was published and reflected his love of the scenery around Earlham. He exhibited widely across the United States including the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition, the Pennsylvania Academy in 1904, the National Academy of Design in 1911 and 1916, the Chicago Art Institute in 1903 and 1907-1914, the Hoosier Salon in 1925, and the 1902 Society of Western Artists.

580. Jean Francois Raffaelli (12850-1924) received his artistic training at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, where he enrolled in order to study under the great French painter Jean-Leon Gerome. He remained exclusively a painter until 1876 when he did his first etching. From this time on he was passionately devoted to printmaking, experimenting extensively with color etching. Raffaelli was a great friend of the Impressionists, particularly Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, and Mary Cassatt. But bitter quarrels with Degas, and his own growing success in the Salon, eventually caused him to move away from that group, and more and more into the world of the official art establishment. He eventuallu focused on Parisian landscapes, and in this manner he reached a large public. The below oils are from the fine collection at the University of Kentucky Museum of Art, Lexington, Kentucky.
