What I mainly learned is that I am in love with Winslow Homer. Here are two paintings by Homer that I love.
The Veteran in the Field
I also like George Bellows a lot. I remember doing a paper on his painting "River in the rain" when I was at RISD. My teacher whose name I have long forgot told us to visit our painting everyday to get to know it. I loved that teacher and I did just that.
There were lots of paintings with African-Americans in them which really surprised me. Not so many African-Americans at the exhibit (only me) when I went to see it. There were a lot of Cassatt and Eakins paintings I remember seeing in my childhood at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
