96. These wonderful portraits are owned by the Chicago Academy of Sciences, Chicago, Illinois. The portraits are reminiscent of the fine school of late 19th-century portraiture headed by the great artist, G.P.A. Healy. The paintings are highly discolored and show overall structural weakness. Cleaning, followed by lining and restretching will return the pair to their proper appearance.

97. Putti as representations of the Arts has always brought a certain charm to this classical subject matter. Boucher's images are amongst the finest. Here the oil-on-canvas image of "Painting" carries a primitive appeal. The painting is owned by the Catharine V. Yost Museum in Pontiac, Illinois. The Museum is housed in a Queen Anne style upper middle class home representing family life in the late 1800s & early 1900s. Nearly all of the Yost family possessions remain in the house.

98. These three oil paintings are owned by the The Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, Oklahoma. The oil-on-canvas-on-board image to the left is by Frederick Judd Waugh (1861-1940).

Balink, born Hendrikus Cornelius Balink in Amsterdam, 1882. He moved to New York and Chicago before finally settling in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1923. He is represented in numerous museums throughout the Southwest. Balink died in 1963.

99. The right painting was executed by Clifton Wheeler (1883-1953). As stated earlier in this site, Wheeler was born in Hadley, Indiana. He was a pupil of William Forsyth in Indianapolis, and William Merrit Chase and Robert Henri in New York. Known for his Indiana Impressionistic style, Clifton exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, the Richmond (IN) Art Association, the Golden Gate Expo, and the Hoosier Salon (1925-1953). The painting is clearly reminiscent of the later period portraits by T.C. Steele. The lower paintings are by Daniel Kotz (1848-1933) and Clarence Ball (1858-1915). All three paintings are owned by the South Bend Regional Museum of Art, South Bend, Indiana.

Her broad open brush strokes are reminiscent of late-Impressionist styles. She was born and died in Lafayette, Indiana.
