681. Marcus Mote (1817-1898) was born into a Quaker family in 1817 near Waynesville, Ohio. He was a self taught artist who, as a child, made his own paints and drawing materials from charcoal and natural plant dyes.  His local Quaker Meeting did not believe in drawing and painting and threatened to kick Marcus out of their church. Fortunately his family was able to convince the church of their son's God given talent. In 1837, he moved to Lebanon, Ohio.  For years he had a studio across the street from The Golden Lamb Hotel and in 1843 he drew former President John Quincy Adams picture there. The hotel is still in existence today. After moving to Richmond, Indiana, Mote opened an academy of design and taught drawing in its public schools. He also circulated a petition that resulted in a law authorizing the teaching of art in Indiana’s schools. The below oils are from the outstanding collection of the Henry County Historical Society, New Castle, Indiana.

682. Born in rural Indiana, Wayman Elbridge Adams' (1883-1959) interest in art was encouraged from an early age by his father, a horse farmer and amateur artist. At the age of twenty-one, Adams moved to Indianapolis to attend the John Herron Art Institute. He took two trips to Europe, the first in 1910 when he traveled to Italy with William Merritt Chase. Two years later, he accompanied Robert Henri to Spain. Wayman Adams' work is represented in the collections of the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Art Institute of Chicago, and San Antonio Museum of Art amongst other national museums. The imaged painting is his first attempt at a full-length portrait and is owned by Depauw University in Greencastle, Indiana.

683. Frank Peyraud (1858-1948) became one of the most notable Impressionist landscape artists active in Chicago during the early Twentieth Century. Originally born in Switzerland, Peyraud enrolled as an architecture student at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. In 1881, at age 22, he emigrated to Chicago where he spent the remainder of his illustrious career. Peyraud became best known for his large, tonal landscape paintings often executed in the early morning or twilight hours at dusk. He gained national acclaim for these atmospheric pictures through his many entries at the Annual Exhibitions of the leading museums around the country. In his lifetime, he exhibited over a hundred paintings at the Art institute of Chicago from 1891 to 1930. The below oils are from the collection of the Peoria Historical Society, Peoria, Illinois.
