196. These two oils are by Josef Israëls (1824-1911). Israëls was born in Groningen in the Netherlands. It was not until he reached 16 years of age that he first went to Amsterdam, where he traveled to study with the master Cornelis Kruseman. In 1845, Israëls went to Paris, where he stayed for three years. His main teacher in Paris was Francois Edouard Picot. Israëls established his reputation at the Parisian salons during the 19th Century, achieving great acclaim, numerous medals and awards, and the Officier de la Legion d'Honneur. He received First Prize at both Expositions Universelles in 1889 and 1900. Israëls is often considered to be one of the most important Dutch artists of the Nineteenth Century. His style and subject matter influenced countless artists including Van Gogh. His paintings are in the permanent collection of museums worldwide, including the national collections in Amsterdam, Dordrecht, Groningen, The Hague, Montreal, Moscow and Rotterdam. These two panel paintings are owned by Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan.

198. The West Bend Museum of Art has recently changed its name to the Museum of Wisconsin Art, a move that better reflects the focus of the museum's collecting instincts centering on 19th and 20th Century Wisconsin regionalist artists. The institution is still under the direction of Mr. Tom Lidtke. These three oils represent images from this new focus.

Lie became one of the best-known American landscape painters in his lifetime. A the age of 13, he arrived in New York and began his art training. Lie was one of the founders of the Armory show in New York. He is best known for his colorful impressionistic scenes of harbors and coves. These were largely painted during the many summers he spent on the coasts of New England and Canada. The right image is by Charles Davis (1856-1933). Davis went to Paris in 1880 and studied at the Academy Julian. His work is represented in most of the leading museums throughout America including the Metropolitan Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Art Institute of Chicago.

Willem Maris (1844-1910) was a landscape artist best known for his pasture scenes in hazy morning light, often including cows and ducks. Maris came from a family of artists including two brothers. In the 1860s all three shared a studio in The Hague. He was a contemporary of Josef Israëls, pictured at the top of the page. The wonderful image on the right is a portrait of Chief High Pipe by Elbridge Ayer Burbank (1897-1910). Burbank was a Chicago portraitist who initially trained in Munich. Between 1897 and 1910 he created nearly 1,000 oil portraits of Native Americans, the largest collection of its kind.
