    • April 6, 1946: A retrospective exhibition of paintings by Inness, covering all stages of his career from its beginning about 1846 to the artist’s death in 1894, will be opened to the public in Museum’s Entrance Gallery on April 6, and will remain on view through May 12.

      The exhibition has been organized by Mrs. Cordelia Sargent Pond and Miss Elizabeth McCausland in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the George Walter Vincent Smith Art Museum at Springfield, Massachusetts, where it was shown in February and March.

      Miss McCausland states: “George Inness bridged the golden day of Mount and the brown decades of Eakins spanning Jacksonian democracy and post-Civil War industrial expansion. One of the most authentic of nineteenth century American artists, he is also one of the least appreciated. While Hudson River and Rocky Mountain painters flaunted flamboyant panoramas and Church apotheosized the Andes, Inness cultivated his acre of mensurable Hackensack and Medfield meadows, of moderate New England harvests, of half-light mists seen from a Montclair studio window.

      PRESS PREVIEW: April 4th from 10 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.

    "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"
