596. 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 Muskegon Museum of Art, Muskegon, Michigan.

600. This "Shore Scene" is attributed to Eugene Boudin (1824-1898). Boudin was born into a seafaring family, and is best known for his paintings of sea and sky. He worked directly from nature on the Normandy coast, especially in the resort towns of Deauville and Trouville. He always painted outdoors and was interested in the effects of light on the sea and sand in different seasons and times of day. Monet and the other Impressionist painters held Boudin in such high esteem that he was included in the first Impressionist exhibition in 1874. Boudin introduced Monet and others to plein air painting, working directly from nature, in the open air. The painting was brought in for treatment by Augustana College, Rock Island, Illinois.
