On another note, a couple days ago a wonderful exhibit "George Inness in Italy" opened at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I have been waiting for this show to open and can not wait until I am able to go see it. Here is the link.
Sneak peak- Here is an excerpt from the review:
George Inness in Italy presents ten oil paintings surveying Inness’s Italian subjects dating from 1850 to 1879. A highlight of the exhibition is Twilight on the Campagna (c. 1851), Inness’s first major work completed in Italy. Recently conserved, the painting has not been on view at the Philadelphia Museum of Art since 1952. Its reemergence and restoration—precipitated by a comprehensive publication, or catalogue raisonné, of Inness’s entire body of work issued in 2007—constitutes a significant rediscovery.
