A Quiet Read (1859). George Winchester (British, 1814 fl. to 1866). Oil on canvas. Exhibited: British Institution, 1860.

"The reason for the artist’s absence? He has had a painting rejected by the Royal Academy for the summer exhibition of 1859, the notice is under his palette — and has immediately gone up to town to submit this picture to the British Institution for their February show in the new year instead. Their notice is under his hat. The painting was exhibited there in 1860, for sale at 15 guineas."

The Orchard Window (1918). Daniel Garber (American, 1880-1958). Oil on canvas. Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Garber’s daughter Tanis is seated in front of a light-filled window that looks out to a vibrant flower garden. The scene takes place in the small stone cottage along the Cuttalossa Creek in Lumberville, Pennsylvania, that Garber acquired in 1915 with the intention of creating a rustic homestead that reflected his artistic vision.
