Brenders, Carl (1937) View 1 Item
In his foreword to the book Pride of Place: The Art of Carl Brenders (2007), Robert Bateman declared, "It has been said that art begins where nature ends.

Brispot, Henri (1846-1928) View 1 Item
A typically Academic painter, albeit with a better sense of humor than most, Henri Brispot focused on genre paintings poking gentle fun at human foibles and either showing the upper middle class, to which he belonged, occupying itself with frivolous pastimes including card games, shopping at the open air book stalls along the Seine, or showing up the pretensions of the peasantry: as an 1897 review in The New York Times describes: M.H.

Cassatt, Mary (1844-1926) View 1 Item

At the 1937 exhibition, "Leaders of American Impressionism", John I. H. Baur, a leading art scholar, declared that Mary Cassatt and Childe Hassam were "pioneer Impressionists" who had "contributed most to the inauguration and development of Impressionism in America ". Mary Cassatt was born May 22, 1844 in Allegheny City, Pennsylvania. The ...
