I thought you’d enjoy seeing the type of Art that is just a few keystrokes away.

The Harvest
Robert Zund, 1827–1909
Purchased with funds from the Birmann Fund in 1874 for the Kunstmuseum Basel, Switzerland

I was fortunate enough to see the above painting in person. Gratefully, it is also in the public domain. Click here for a closer look. https://bit.ly/3bAVkLm

One favorite that is not in the public domain is N.C. Wyeth’s ‘In a Dream I Meet General Washington.’ It comes with a unique story. https://bit.ly/35eaHIE

Wyeth was painting a 30 foot mural of Washington and fell from the scaffolding to a marble floor. That night Wyeth dreamt that he watched the Battle of Brandywine unfold before him as Washington narrated. (Wyeth lived very close to where the Battle of Brandywine took place.) (I) 

I always loved this picture because it looks like Washington is stopping to ask Wyeth for directions.

Another favorite is Monet’s ‘Footbridge at Giverny’ at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Unfortunately, it is not in the public domain.
