has just published
on Carl Newland Werntz
who was included in the
1916 Palette and Chisel Exhibition
at the Art Institute of Chicago
A rather lively painter,
Who better to found the
Chicago Academy of Fine Arts
which promised its students:
"Sunshine Painting and Illustrating Classes
- wonderful effects, day and night"
Might we say that the Chicago Academy,
founded and often taught by P&C members,
was the fore-runner
of the school program
now at the Palette and Chisel?
