471. John Carleton Wiggins (1848-1932), also know as just Carleton Wiggins, was one of the early artists of the colony at Old Lyme, CT. He was best known for his bucolic landscapes, especially those featuring cows. In addition to painting in the area of Old Lyme, he also painted in East Hampton, Long Island, in the 1890s. Wiggins studied at the National Academy of Design with George Inness in 1870. He became an associate member of the National Academy in 1890 and a full member in 1906. Wiggins exhibited at the National Academy, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Boston Art Club among others. His work is preserved at the National Gallery of Art, the Metropolitcoan Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art. The pictured image is from the wonderful collection of the Oshkosh public Museum, Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

472. Sir Godfrey Kneller (August 8, 1646 ­ October 19, 1723) was the leading portrait painter in England during the late 17th and early 18th centuries, and was court painter to British monarchs from Charles II to George I. He traveled to Holland where he became a pupil of Ferdinand Bol and Rembrandt in Amsterdam. His major works include The Chinese Convert (1687), a series of four portraits of Isaac Newton painted at various junctures of the latter's life, and a series of ten reigning European monarchs, including King Louis XIV of France. Below oils are from the Marquette University's Haggerty Museum.

474. The University of Iowa Museum of Art, Iowa City, Iowa, has one of the great university collections in America. Masterpieces include Jackson Pollock's Mural, a gift of Peggy Guggenheim, and Max Beckmann's triptych Karneval. Grant Wood first began teaching at the institution in 1934. The imaged painting has been faced with Japanese tissue paper and has never been seen by any of the current staff. Conservation efforts will hopefully "discover" a work by Mathieu Le Nain (1607-1677).
