607. Starved Rock State Park is situated less than 100 miles from Chicago. This park attracted over 2 million visitors last year. The park derives its name from a Native American legend. In the 1760s, Chief Pontiac of the Ottawa tribe was attending a  council meeting. At this council of the Illinois and the Pottawatomie, Kinebo, the  chief of the Illinois tribe stabbed Chief Pontiac. Vengeance arose in Pontiac’s followers and a great battle ensued. The Illinois, fearing death, took refuge on the great rock.  After many days, the Illinois died of starvation giving this park its name. This oil, owned by the Park, depicts the famous Starved Rock.

608. Charles Warren Eaton (1857–1937) was an American artist best known for his tonalist landscapes. He earned the nickname "the pine tree painter" for his numerous depictions of Eastern White Pine trees. Born in Albany, New York, Eaton became a landscape painter much influenced by George Inness.  His intimate, moody scenes were known for subdued golden-brown hues, muted tonal harmonies, and the subject was often the landscape in late autumn or winter. He traveled extensively, visiting Italy in 1910 to 1912 and in 1923. The below oils are from the fine collection of the University of Kentucky Museum of Art.

610. Samuel Mazzuchelli was born in Milan in 1806. At the age of 17, he entered the Dominican Order of Preachers. Five years later he came to America and was assigned to be missionary priest of the Northwest Territory. He established many local parish communities and designed more than 24 churches and civic buildings before his death in 1864 at the age of 57. In 1993, Pope John Paul II declared Father Mazzuchelli Venerable, meaning he exemplified heroic virtues during his lifetime and was a servant of God, thus beginning the process of someday possibly recognizing Father Samuel as a saint in the Roman Catholic Church. In 1847, he founded the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters, Sinsinawa, Wisconsin, the owners of the below two paintings.
