302. Glyn Warren Philpot (1884-1937), was an English artist, best known for his portraits of contemporary figures. Philpot was born in Clapham London, but the family moved to Herne in Kent shortly afterwards. Philpot was elected to the Royal Academy in 1923. Some of his later work was considered controversial in its time because of the explicit sexual imagery, and this led to a loss of popularity which caused him financial hardship. He has had exhibitions at The Ashmolean Museum and The National Portrait Gallery. These four oils are from the outstanding collection at the Muskegon Museum of Art, Muskegon, Michigan.

303. Ralph Clarkson is one of Chicago's most important portrait artists. Clarkson was born in 1861 in Massachusetts. He studied art in Boston and with the renown Lefebvre in Paris. He eventually came to Chicago in 1896 and became an instructor and governing member of the Art Institute. In 1898 he was a founding member of the Eagle's Nest Colony. The Colony acted as a summer retreat for a variety of artists including Lorado Taft and Hamlin Garland. The lease on the property lasted as long as one of the original founding members was alive. The lease was provided by the sitter in this portrait, Wallace Heckman. The two are inextricably linked. In 1942, the Colony ended upon the death of Ralph Clarkson. He is currently represented in the collections of the National Academy, New York and the Art Institute of Chicago. The portrait is owned by Northern Illinois University's Lorado Taft Field Campus in Oregon, Illinois

305. The Indiana State Museum is the owner of these four oils and hundreds of works by T. C. Steele, the leading artist of the Hoosier School of Midwestern Impressionists. Steele was born in 1847 and died in 1926. During his formative years he moved to Munich and studied at the Royal Academy of Art with Frank Duveneck and Ludwig Loefftz. In 1885 he returned to Indianapolis and established an art school with William Forsyth. While his landscapes are his signature style, he was also a very fine portrait artist. Today he is remembered as Indiana's finest artist from the early part of the 20th century. The museum houses over 350 paintings from this artist's estate.
