351. This wonderful oil-on-panel American still-life is owned by DePaul University, Chicago, Illinois. While the painting is unsigned it is reminiscent of the work of Severin Roesen (1815-1872). Cleaning will return the intended coloration and the three-dimensional illusion of form and space.

352. The below paintings are owned by the Kenosha Public Museum in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Peter Bianchi was born in Kenosha in 1920. His early studies were carried out at the Mizen Academy of Art in Chicago, the Chicago Academy of Art and the American Academy of Art. While working on a project for National Geographic, on the Dead Sea Scrolls, Bianchi had the opportunity to experiment with scientific illustration. His work was so well received, he was invited to join the staff of the magazine and continued his work there for fourteen years. He collaborated with scientific specialists to illustrate Louis Leakey's great 1959 Tanzanian discovery of "Zinjanthropus." Peter Bianchi died in 2001. This group represents the last in a series of thirty-two Bianchi images conserved for the museum.

353. 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 four paintings are owned by the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette, Lafayette, Indiana.

354. Mathias Alten (1871-1938) led a well traveled career. He was born in Germany and at the age of 17 emigrated with his family to Grand Rapids, Michigan. In 1898 Alten went to France and studied with Benjamin Constant and Jean-Paul Laurens at the Academie Julian. Interested in animal drawing, he also attended classes at a veterinary school and later traveled throughout France and Italy. He returned to Grand Rapids and devoted his work to plein air landscapes influenced by American and French Impressionism. In 1910 he traveled to Holland to study Dutch landscape painting and in 1912 he went to Spain. Always interested in outdoor light, he went to Taos, New Mexico in 1927 and painted landscapes and Indian figures. He returned to Grand Rapids but spent some time in California and Florida. The below oils are from the collection of Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan.

355. Oliver Dennett Grover (1861-1927) was born in Earlsville, Illinois. In 1876, he moved to Chicago to attend the University of Chicago. He also attended classes at the Academy of Design. Over the next four years he studied in Munich, Florence, and in Paris under the great Jean-Paul Laurens. He returned to Chicago in 1887 and became an instructor at the Art Institute. Some of his finest works, now lost, were carried out at the World's Columbian Exposition where he completed ceiling murals in several of the buildings. The author had the honor of treating his mural on the 10th floor of Chicago's Fine Arts Building on Michigan Avenue. The two below oils are owned by the Oregon Public Library, Oregon, Illinois.
