American Masterworks from the Corcoran: 1815-1940

This past April while visiting my sister in Virginia, I was able to be reacquainted with the Corcoran  collection that is now in the possession of the National Gallery of Art. My earliest influences were from this collection when I was a student at the Corcoran Gallery Art School for 2 years when I was eleven and twelve years old. The two paintings that influenced me the most and were before me all these years as I pursued my art career were: "The Last of the Buffalo" by Albert Bierstadt, and "Leisure and Labor" by Frank Blackwell Mayer.
