263. Salvator Rosa (1615-1673) was an Italian painter, draughtsman, etcher, poet and actor. He was one of the most original artists and extravagant personalities of the 17th century. His most popular and influential works were his landscapes, the wild and mountainous beauty of which contrasted with the pastoral scenes of Claude Lorrain. Rosa also painted macabre subjects, philosophical allegories and grand historical themes; he was, moreover, the most significant satirical poet of the Italian 17th century, and there is a close relationship between his poetry and painting. The left image is a bare hint of its intended appearance. The right image is from the School of Rubens (1577-1640). The 17th Century panel painting has cracked into three separate vertical pieces. Each of these sections will be readhered into proper position. Rubens was clearly the most influential Flemish painter from his time period. Both of these paintings are from the outstanding collection of the Figge Art Museum, Davenport, Iowa.

264. Charles Partridge Adams (1858 - 1942) was a major Colorado landscape painter during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

In 1920, Adams moved to California where he opened a studio first in Pasadena and later in Laguna Beach where he remained until his death. Edmund Davison (1877-1944) was born in Wapello, Iowa in 1877 and moved with his family to Wichita, Kansas when he was a boy.

265. Walter Elmer Schofield (1867-1944) was a landscape painter associated with the Pennsylvania impressionists. Known for his virile style of painting, Schofield specialized in snow scenes, painted in Bucks County and other locales in the Delaware River Valley, as well as marine landscapes often painted in Cornwall, England. Schofield generally painted outdoors, en plein air, savoring even the bitterest winter weather. Although Schofield's early landscapes were soft and romantic, featuring muted greens, grays, and browns in a tonalist manner, his mature work was characterized by bold realism and impressionism. These paintings are vibrant, showing bold colors, and broad, thick, heavy brushstrokes. Schofield divided his time between the United States, where he was based in the Philadelphia area, and Cornwall, in England. Landscape painter Hudson Mindell Kitchell, 1862-1944, painted dark, evening landscapes similar in style to those of Ralph Blakelock. Though Kitchell worked in many locales, he lived in New York City in 1924, exhibiting with the Society of Independent Artists during that decade. These two paintings are from the outstanding collection of the Philbrook Art Museum, Tulsa, Oklahoma.
