Paintings From My Photo Archive

I visit a lot of museums. I try not to be one of those people that walks around with their phone/camera out all the time. But once in awhile, when I won’t be bothering anyone else, I do take photos. Below are a few of my favorites from previous trips.

Raphaelle Peale (1774-1825), Blackberries, 1813.

Raphaelle Peale is from a large family of talented artists. His brother, Rembrandt Peale, painted Thomas Jefferson’s presidential portrait. Try Googling him for more info. The family is fascinating.

Carl Gustav Carus, Landscape at Sunset, 1830.

If I remember correctly, these 2 paintings, above and below, are from a show of Scandanavian landscape painters that was at the Met.

Johan Christian Clausen Dahl (Norwegian 1788-1857), A Cloud and Landscape Study of Moonlight, 1822
