She was a frequent subject of her husband's photography; one of his photographs which includes her is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

238. These two portraits are owned by the Wisconsin State Historical Society, in Madison, Wisconsin. The right image of former Governor "John Dodge" was completed by William Cogswell (1819-1903). Cogswell was a self-taught artist who rose to great fame. His best-known work is the portrait of Lincoln, which now hangs in the White House. It was Grant who selected the portrait for the White House. Cogswell also painted a portrait of Grant that now hangs in the U.S. Senate. Another portrait owned by the Wisconsin State Historical Society by Cogswell was treated previously on this site on Page 26. The left image is a portrait of "Vinnie Ream" painted by George Caleb Bingham (1811-1879). A Case Study on this painting is now under construction. Interesting is the connection between the Bingham and the Cogswell, for Ream is also best known for her image of Lincoln, a full-length sculpture completed for the rotunda of the United States Capitol building in Washington, D.C.

239. George Winter (1809-1876) was born in England. He frequented London's museums and galleries as a young man but apparently received no formal training in art. In 1830, Winter emigrated to New York where he studied for a short time at the National Academy of Design. In 1837, he arrived by stagecoach in the frontier town of Logansport, Indiana, coming, as he said, "..to the Wabash for the purpose...of seeing and learning something of the Indians and exercising the pencil in the (sic.) direction." During his lifetime, Winter documented a vanishing culture. He obtained the confidence of the Miami and Potawatomi Indians and had unique opportunities to sketch them as an artist, but, like an historian, he kept accurate records and wrote prolifically about his paintings and the subjects and circumstances of his works. These two paintings are owned by the Tippecanoe County Historical association, Lafayette, Indiana.

240. 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 left image is by Leonora Carrington (1917-) The precocious artist was expelled from Convent School before traveling to Europe where she met Max Ernst and exhibited with the Surrealists. After living in France and Spain, she moved to Mexico in 1942. Her mature work reveals a highly personalized vision, one where a hallucinatory world of myth, nightmare, and the occult all mingle. Both paintings are owned by the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette, Lafayette, Indiana.
