431. The imaged oil on panel is attributed to Mathys Schoevaerdts (1665-1702) who lived all his life in Brussels; his bright, panoramic landscapes follow in the tradition of Jan Brueghel the Elder (1568-1625), who lived in that city from 1608. Schoevaerdts presents a microcosm of contemporary society attuned to the courtly sensibilities of Brussels, capital of the southern Netherlands. The painting is from the collection of Coe College, Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

432. Sergey Yurievich Sudeikin, also known as Serge Soudeikine (1882­ 1946), was a Russian artist and set-designer associated with the Ballets Russes and the Metropolitan Opera. Having been banned from the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture for his "obscene drawings", Sudeikin joined the Mir Iskusstva movement. Sudeikin designed the sets and costumes for Diaghilev's production of La tragédie de Salomé by Florent Schmitt in 1913, and assisted in the execution of Nicholas Roerich's designs for Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring. In 1913 he eloped to Paris with the dancer Vera de Bosset, whom he subsequently married, and who in the 1920s left him to become the mistress and ultimately Stravinsky's second wife . The below three oils are owned by the Flint Institute of Arts, Flint, Michigan.

433. The English-born artists Samuel Marsden Brookes and Thomas H. Stevenson moved to America and met in Chicago. In 1855, the pair opened a studio in Milwaukee and worked together on portrait and landscape oils. Collaboration on paintings is unusual but each brought an artistic strength. Brookes excelled as a portraitist and Stevenson as a landscapist. The lower left image is a wonderful portrait of Nathaniel Ames. Ames was Wisconsin's last survivor of the Revolutionary War. The lower right portrait pictures Lucius Fairchild. The author's Case Study, "John Singer Sargent's 1887, 'Port. of Lucius Fairchild'" can be referenced at WHZSargentIntro.html . All three oils are owned by the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, Madison., Wisconsin.

Two of the pictured oils are from the hand of 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.
