387. Three of the below portraits are by the Chicago artist Thorp. The upper right image is a portrait of William Tecumseh Sherman (1820-1891). Sherman was a Union General during the Civil War and the commanding general of the United States Army for fourteen years. He earlier fought at the first battle of Bull Run. After capturing Atlanta during the Civil War he initiated his "March to the Sea." The depicted oils are on display at Montauk, the historic site that is former Iowa Governor William Larrabee's residence. Larrabee was Iowa's 12th Governor. His Italianate mansion of brick and native limestone was built in 1874. Montauk sits on a hill about 200 feet higher than the town of Clermont which is about a mile to the south. It's an imposing 14-room brick and stone house in a grassy clearing surrounded by 100,000 trees. Larrabee's daughter, Anna, lived in the house until she passed away in 1965 at the age of 96. The family opened the house to the public in the fall of 1967. They maintained ownership until 1976 when, the contents and 40 acres were deeded to the state of Iowa as a historical site. The State Historical Society of Iowa preserves Montauk which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

389. Born in Chicago, Frederic Mizen became a noted western genre and landscape painter as well as an illustrator and portraitist. In Chicago, he attended the J. Francis Smith Academy of Art, studied there with Walter Ufer, and then enrolled at the Art Institute of Chicago. He also studied at the Academy Julian in Paris. At age 20, he began an illustration assignment with Joseph P. Berren Studios for a Sears catalogue and continued commercial art, doing the first billboard ad for Coca Cola as well as numerous magazine covers including "Saturday Evening Post," the "American," and "Collier's." During the summers, he painted in the West, joining Walter Ufer in Taos, New Mexico. After Mizen established his own art school in Chicago, he regularly took students to Taos in the summers. In 1936, he founded the Frederic Mizen Academy of Art in Chicago. Mizen died in 1964. This image is owned by the Wilmette Historical Museum, Wilmette, Illinois.

390. Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, is the owner of this oil. The piece came in for treatment titled "Angels Carrying the Vestments of Christ" but on closer inspection it appears that the subject matter may be "Angels Carrying Instruments of the Passion." The upper left angel holds a cruet on a plate and a nail while the middle angel holds pincers in one hand and the Holy Sponge on a reed in the other. The right angel does hold a robe but this iconography would be in keeping with the Robe of Mockery. The painting is unsigned but appears to be a masterful Italian work from the early-mid 18th Century.
