426. Antonij (Anton) Mauve (1838-1888) was born in Zaandam in 1838. At the age of 16, he left for Haarlem where he was apprenticed to the artist Pieter Frederik van Os a specialist in cattle, followed by Wouterus Verschuur who painted horses. Together with Paul Gabriel, ten years his senior, he would often go into the countryside to paint directly from nature. From the age of twenty he regularly stayed and worked in Oosterbeek, where many artists went, as well as in The Hague, Scheveningen, Amsterdam, Dordrecht and Drente. In 1872 Mauve settled in The Hague where he became a leading member of the Hague School of painters inspired by the French Barbizon School in turn by the work of John Constable. Mauve was married to Vincent van Gogh's cousin Ariëtte Sophia Jeannette Carbentus. Vincent spent three weeks at Mauve's studio at the end of 1881 and during that time he made his first experiments in painting under Mauve's tutelage, first in oils and then early the next year in watercolor. Previously he had concentrated on drawing. The below five oils are all owned by the Janesville Art League, Janesville, Wisconsin.

427. Roger Brown (1941­1997) was able to offer simplistic designs and compositions that seemed to captivate the viewer. Silhouette figures and landscapes allowed the spectator to become a voyeur. The search for the hidden meaning was a magnetic draw. This oil on canvas painting is titled, "Mountain Sites" It is owned by the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, Madison, Wisconsin.

429. Pier Francesco Fiorentino (1444-1497) was an Italian painter born in Florence. His documented and signed works reveal him to have been an artisan-painter of high quality, promoting invention and with a sound technique. His devotional paintings have a serene order and an air of humility. The fact that he worked mostly for a provincial clientele somewhat limited his scope, but it also allowed him to express his own simple vein of piety derived from an unsophisticated pictorial culture that he gradually enriched through his technical virtuosity. The below three paintings are owned by Marquette University's fine Haggerty Museum of Art, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
