78. Charles Atherton Cumming (1859-1932) was an important Iowa artist. He was a true "founder" involved in the organizing and developing of schools of art while teaching and pursuing his own career. He originally studied at Cornell College in Iowa but later transferred to the Chicago Academy of Art, which later became the Art Institute of Chicago. He returned to Cornell in 1880 and taught art classes before leaving in 1855 for the Academie Julien in Paris.

McBean of McBean" 1743
H. 48" X W. 38" Before Treatment
79. The Illinois St. Andrews Society, North Riverside, Illinois is the owner of this important portrait of William MacBean of MacBean. Major-General William MacBean, who attained his rank in 1873 after joining the 93rd Regiment as a private, gained the Victoria Cross for his actions at the main breach of the Begum Bagh at Lucknow, India, in 1858, where he single-handedly killed eleven enemy. He later rose to command the regiment. The Victoria Cross is the highest medal the British Empire can award. In 1969 the U.S. astronaut Alan Bean, an American Scot carried a square metre of the MacBean tartan with him on his historic Apollo XII space mission to the moon. The painting is inscribed lower left, "Age 86. 1743. Painted from Life." The painting's severe distortions will be corrected during the treatment procedures.

80. Roger Brown is considered one of Chicago's finest contemporary artists. In 1974 he purchased an 1880's two-story building at 1926 Halsted Street. The building was converted into a living space and work studio. In 1996, Brown gave his extensive collection of art and the building to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The collection contains over 1,000 works of art from the Chicago Imagists to ethnographic art from Africa, the Americas, and Asia. This piece is an early painting from his students days at the School of the Art Institute.
