91. Roger Brown was able to offer simplistic designs and compositions that seemed to captivate the viewer. Silhouette figures and landscapes allowed the spectator to become a voyeur. The search for the hidden meaning was a magnetic draw. This oil on canvas painting is titled, "The Farm." It is owned by the The Roger Brown Study Collection, Chicago, Illinois.

F. Mans "Winter Landscape"
17th Century
H. 13" X W. 18" Before Treatment
92. The 17th Century in Holland was a time of unparalleled prosperity. Many of the Dutch painters focused on genre scenes, or scenes of everyday life. These compositions allow us an opportunity to see into the Dutch way of life and how they spent their leisure time. This winter scene by F. Mans is typical of one of these scenes. Mans was a follower of Hendrick Avercamp, the master of outdoor skating scenes. The panel painting is heavily layered with discolored varnish and will change dramatically during cleaning.

94. Taken from entry 81, Ethel Robertson Gath(1892-1972) sought to portray the grandeur of simplicity. She presents her subjects in a manner that is direct, straightforward and, at the same time, familiar. The Dutch Baroque artist offered many of the same scenes as did Regional American artists of the 1930's. As a child, Gath took art classes in Buffalo, New York and at the Corcoran School of Art. Between 1933 and 1949, she received numerous awards and exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery, Washington, D.C. These oils are owned by the Flint Institute of Arts, Flint, Michigan. Three are being prepared for a retrospective exhibit entitled, The Simple Life:Paintings by Former Flint Artist Ethel Robertson Gath. The museum was established in 1928 and possesses masterpiece paintings by Rubens, Cassatt, Thomas Hart Benton and Andrew Wyeth. The fourth painting is an oil on panel, "Portrait of a Man.".

95. Augustana College, Rock Island, Illinois is the owner of this portrait of Marie Wallberg. A 1935 newspaper states, "Augustana's 25-year-old dream of a new science hall was made a reality through a bequest of $155,000.00 by the late Miss Marie Wallberg, ...the fifth new building to be erected at Augustana in the past 25 years." The portrait represents a wonderful piece of social history.
