Milestones

George Caleb Bingham
The American painter George Caleb Bingham died in Kansas City, Missouri. Bingham experienced from an early age the scenes on the major western rivers, the Missouri and the Mississippi, which inspired his developments as a major genre painter. Teaching himself to draw and compose from art instruction books and engravings, the only resources available in the frontier territories, Bingham began painting portraits as early as 1834, notable for their sharpness, clear light and competent handling of paint. -1879

Frank Whitford: A Brush with Nature
The exhibition "Frank Whitford: A Brush with Nature" was on view at the National Gallery in London. Landscape oil sketches done between the 17th and 19th centuries were put on display. All came from a private collection assembled with extensive knowledge and obvious love, and it was shown there publicly for the first time. They were not just a delicacy for connoisseurs, or for scholars interested in the surprisingly long history of painting nature out of doors before the impressionists turned it into an important artistic concern. The exhibition was full of lovely pieces, many of which revealed an unfamiliar aspect of the work of painters known for quite different subject matter, Boecklin, Lord Leighton, and Degas among them. And Thomas Jones's late-18th-century landscape with a distant view of the sea was a revelation. -1999

Charles V
The exhibition "The Art of the Jewels and the Silver from the Time of Charles V" was inaugurated in the Coruna, Spain. -2000
