Carl Hoeckner, 1883-1972
Except for the above,
this year's Artropolis is showing
most of the usual suspects
found in previous years:
I first saw "Homecoming" in this show at the Chicago History Museum 3 years ago.
Now it's for sale,
and a mere $220,000 will take it home.
Hoeckner was one of the P&C modernists
who quit club around 1920,
finding the rest of us to be too conservative.
Frederick Mulhaupt (1871-1938)
Catherine and Patrick used to live in the basement of the P&C,
and her still-life
now hangs in the library
above Frederick Gray's portrait of Marzolo.

Once a year, her San Francisco Gallery, Paul Thiebaud brings her recent paintings to Art Chicago.
Louis Oscar Griffith (1875 - 1956)
Griffith has been dead now for 55 years,
but every year new landscapes of his,
usually from Brown County,
have been appearing at the Antiques Fair
