Electronic Resources: Art Sales Catalogues Online and Lugt's Répertoire Online

Frits Lugt, an art collector and scholar, was born in 1884 in the Netherlands and received early training at the renowned Amsterdam auction house of Frederik Muller. During his time there Lugt began to compile auction catalogues and later went on to compile catalogues of Dutch and Flemish drawings of the Louvre, the Bibliothèque National and Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris.

A Winter Sky, by George Inness

These first few days of snow remind me of this brilliant winter sunset by George Inness (American, 1825-1894). Though not on view now, we can at least see Winter Sky here on the Museum website collection (1927.388). Isn't it a beauty? My winters in eastern Pennsylvania looked like this, complete with Canada geese flying in formation. Mark Cole directed me to this landscape last winter, and I find its setting sun and reflective clouds magical in their frozen landscape.
