312. This "Head of Saint John the Baptist" is layered with dirt, grime and discolored varnish. These films have flattened the form and falsified the illusion of three-dimensional space. Removing these layers will return the intended tonal relationships. This is a rare oil on paper painting form the late 16th century. It is owned by the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago.

314. Elgin Academy, Elgin, Illinois, was founded in 1839. Today, the school has an enrollment of over 400 students. Last year, the Academy broke ground for its new Media, Science, and Fine Arts Center. The building is now in full operation. With a school almost 170-years-old, it is not surprising that a wonderful art collection has been procured over the years. These oils well attest to the collection's character and strengths. The collection includes numerous WPA and IAP paintings.
