748. Carl Weeks made a fortune in the cosmetic industry. During a 1921 visit to Salisbury, England, he and his wife Edith encountered the Kings House, a fifteenth-century manor. They knew immediately they had found the inspiration for their Des Moines home. Construction began in 1923 and required five years to complete. Today, the Salisbury House & Gardens is home to a library, fine art, rare books, historic documents, decorative arts and musical instruments all of international significance. The halls of Salisbury House are lined with great works of art from such acclaimed artists as Anthony Van Dyck, Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Sir Thomas Lawrence, Joseph Stella, and Lillian Genth. The below oils by Lillian Genth will be featured in an upcoming exhibit.

749.  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 portrait, after Healy is by Adeline Wigand (1852-1955) and is owned by the Iowa State Historical Society, Des Moines, Iowa.  Wigand was born and raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

750. Albert Sheldon Pennoyer (1888-1957) grew up in Berkeley, California where he attended the University of California. In 1912, he moved to Paris to study architecture at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. The following year he took up painting and studied at the Académies Julien and Grand Chaumière. Pennoyer returned to America at the onset of World War I, and set up his New York City studio where he worked for the next 38 years. During the course of the next several decades, Pennoyer rose to fame as an American portrait and landscape painter, and was particularly famous for his numerous scenes of railroads and trains. Pennoyer served with the Monuments Men, from 1944 to 1945, recovering Italian artworks removed from local museums by German troops during World War II. He died in a tragic auto accident outside of Madrid while he was in Spain painting watercolors. The below oils are from the collection of the University of Nevada, Reno, Nevada.
