Celebrate with Asher Brown Durand’s “Forest in the Morning Light,” c. 1855. This is one in a series of “tree portraits” painted by Durand between the mid-1840s and the mid-1870s. Notice his careful attention to specific details—Durand emphasized the importance of the close, almost scientific, observation of nature. He took numerous excursions in the woods so that he could paint directly from what he saw. 🌳

Happy birthday to British artist Rachel Whiteread, born on this day in 1963. At the age of 27, Whiteread made "Ghost," her breakthrough work. Whiteread worked in an abandoned building at 486 Archway Road, North London. The result is a negative plaster cast of the space of a parlor in a modest Victorian townhouse. "Ghost" was made by hand almost entirely by the artist, who laboriously hauled plaster of paris dry mix up the steep Archway Road on her bike, a few bags at a time. She methodically applied wet plaster on everything but the ceiling and floor in logical, gridded sections. When the plaster dried, she peeled the molds from the walls and reassembled them on a steel frame. With "Ghost," Whiteread invented a new type of work, creating an impossible form by turning habitable air space into an impenetrable mass. By taking plaster casts of domestic features which, as she put it, carry "the residue of years and years of use," the artist intended to "mummify the air in the room." See "Ghost" in the upcoming survey of the artist's work at the Gallery, opening September 16, 2018. Link in bio with more information.

Do these cattle make you smile? 🐮 Dutch Belted cattle were brought to the US from the Netherlands in the 19th century by a handful of people, including circus showman P.T. Barnum. He exhibited the cattle—notable for their striking white belt—in circus performances, describing them as a "rare and aristocratic breed." 🐮 Lawrence Lebduska was probably similarly charmed by the cattle. He loved painting animals in colorful landscapes. Lebduska studied stained glass and set design before he decided to try painting. The flat appearance and bold colors in "White Belted Cattle" (1937, oil on canvas, courtesy @philamuseum) might be a reflection of Lebduska’s stained glass studies. 🐮

Edward Hopper’s painting "Cape Cod Evening" (1939) was originally intended to be titled "Whippoorwill," according to notes made by the artist’s wife, Josephine Nivison Hopper. What are some of the clues in the painting that suggest the original title?

At just 23 years old, Rembrandt Peale painted this portrait of his 17-year-old brother, Rubens Peale. In this work Rembrandt commemorated his brother's horticultural triumph—this very geranium was presumed to be the first specimen of the exotic plant ever grown in North America. “Rubens Peale with a Geranium” (1801) could be described as a double portrait because the geranium is as lovingly portrayed as the painter's brother is. What might you include in a portrait of your sibling?
