711. Born and raised in Boston to impoverished parents, George Healy was one of the best-known portrait painters of the mid to late 19th century. In 1855, he established a home in Chicago from which he frequently traveled to the East Coast and the South to paint portraits of leading politicians and aristocrats. After the Civil War, he returned to Europe for 25 years but left at age 79 because of his disdain for the new turns of the Parisian art scene that included Impressionism. The below portraits are owned by the Wisconsin State Historical Society, Madison, Wisconsin.

712. These oils represent 107 paintings that have been conserved for the Indiana State Museum over the last eleven years. The paintings are from the hand of T. C. Steele, the leading artist of the Hoosier School of Midwestern Impressionists. Steele was born in 1847 and died in 1926. During his formative years he moved to Munich and studied at the Royal Academy of Art with Frank Duveneck and Ludwig Loefftz. The right image is from this period. In 1885 he returned to Indianapolis and established an art school with William Forsyth. While his landscapes are his signature style, he was also a very fine portrait artist. Today he is remembered as Indiana's finest artist from the early part of the 20th century.
