751. The Scholte House, Pella, Iowa, built in the winter and spring of 1847-1848, was the fulfilment of a promise Dominie Hendrik Scholte made to his wife Mareah to alleviate her homesickness and disappointment. He had promised to build her a house with all the comforts of the home she had left in The Netherlands. The last Scholte descendant to live in the house was Leonora Gaass Hettinga. She gave the house to the Pella Historical Society in 1979 for use as a museum. The imaged oil is by Mareah Scholte, the wife of the founder of Pella.

752. 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.

753. Nils Otto Tank (1800--1864) was a Moravian Church missionary and pioneer land developer in Wisconsin. He was born in Norway and immigrated to the United States in 1850. The Tanks traveled to Wisconsin near Green Bay where a group of Norwegian Moravian immigrants wished to form a settlement. He then turned his activities to land speculations in Menasha and Manitowoc, and to railroad ventures. The Tank Cottage at Heritage Hill State Historic Park in Green Bay is reported to be the oldest house in Wisconsin. In 1975, the building came down the river on a barge and became a part of Heritage Hill State Historic Park. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The below oils are from the collection of the Wisconsin State Historical Society, Madison, Wisconsin.

755. The below painting is 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. 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. These four oils are owned by the Richmond Museum of Art, Richmond, Indiana.
