251. These four oils are owned by the Illinois State Museum, Springfield, Illinois. The left image is by Frederic Tellander (1878-1977). Tellander studied in Paris and Rome. Between the years 1910 and 1941, he exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago on 24 occasions. He was the winner of several awards, including the Englewood Woman's Club Prize in 1922; the Men's Art Club Prize in 1924; the Municipal Art League and Fine Arts Building Building Prizes in 1927; and the Chicago Galleries Association Prizes 1926-30. The right scene is by Martin Hennigs (1886-1956). Hennings was born in Penns Grove, New Jersey, and developed an interest in art at a young age. He later graduated from the Chicago Art Institute and moved to Europe shortly before World War I. While in Europe he continued to refine his artistic abilities. The onset of World War I, however, forced Hennings to move back to Chicago. At the suggestion of an influential patron, Hennings moved to Taos, New Mexico, where he found a new outlet for his creative energies. In 1924 he was elected to the prestigious Taos Society of Artists.

253. The left image is by John William Vawter. Vawter was born in Boone County, West Virginia in 1871 and moved with his family to Greenfield, Indiana in 1877.

254. The Oshkosh Public Museum, Oshkosh, Wisconsin is the owner of these mid- to late-19th century portraits. While the images are husband and wife, they are different sizes. This would suggest that they may have been executed at different times or are possibly by different artists. Judging from the age of the sitters, it is more likely they were done at different times. The portraits are both in poor visual and structural condition, and will require considerable work to return them to an exhibitable appearance.
