761. Frank Virgil Dudley (1868-1957) was known as the "Painter of the Dunes," because of his fascination with the Indiana dunes on Lake Michigan, beginning with his first visit in 1911 when he was hiking with the Prairie Club of Chicago.  This organization had a spirit of regional identity that championed the appreciation  of the local landscape. In 1916, Dudley decided to focus on the  Dunes as his primary subject matter.  In 1918, thirty of his paintings were featured in a Chicago Art Institute exhibit. This oil is owned by Valparaiso University's Brauer Museum of Art, Valparaiso, Indiana.

763. Very few details about the life of Carel Breydel (1678-1733) have been recorded. He is best known as a painter of battle pieces and cavalry attacks. He was an older brother of Frans Breydel, who became court painter in Kassel. He left for a trip to Italy but when he heard about his brother's success in Kassel, he abandoned his plans to go to Italy and travelled instead to Kassel to join his brother. Here the two brothers worked together for two years with considerable success. He died in Antwerp in 1733. The artist's signature was discovered in the lower right corner on each panel. The below oils are owned by the Krannert Art Museum in Champaign, Illinois.

765. The Washington County Historical Society oversees a number of historic buildings in Hagerstown, Maryland. One of these, the Miller House, was built on the site of an earlier structure consisting of a home and pottery business. The first section of the Federal Style townhouse was built in 1825. The house went through a number of owners and finally to Dr. Victor Miller, Jr., one of three physician sons of a Civil War surgeon. The property was eventually donated to the Washington County Historical Society. Portraiture of the various inhabitants of the house, and their extended families, decorate the walls. The collection also includes  holdings of Civil War artifacts and silver.
