Charles Bird King,1785-1862, Washington, District of Columbia. Born in Newport, Rhode Island, Charles Bird King became famous for his portraits of distinguished Native Americans. He studied with Samuel King, colonial painter, and then at age 15, ran away to New York City where he worked in the studio of Edward Savage. From 1805 to 1812, he lived in London, studying with Benjamin West and sharing a studio with Thomas Sully. In 1816, he settled in Washington D.C., becoming the city's first significant resident artist. He did portraits of politicians and then spent 16 years on a commission to paint members of a five-tribe Indian delegation, which came to the city in 1821. The results became the basis of the National Indian Portrait Gallery. The originals burned, but lithography copies remain. He did an occasional still life, some of them in trompe l'oeil style including The Vanity of an Artist's Dream, which shows dusty, dilapidated books, stale food, and debris from an artist's studio. Another work, Still Life Game, has dark tones and melancholy mood and highly realistic rendering.

Giovanni Paolo Panini, School of, Italian, 1691-1765. Giovanni Paolo Panini or Pannini (17 June 1691 – 21 October 1765) was a painter and architect, who worked in Rome and is mainly known as one of the vedutisti ("view painters"). As a painter, Panini is best known for his vistas of Rome, in which he took a particular interest in the city's antiquities. Among his most famous works are his view of the interior of the Pantheon (on behalf of Francesco Algarotti), and his vedute—paintings of picture galleries containing views of Rome. Most of his works, specially those of ruins, have a fanciful and unreal embellishment characteristic of capriccio themes. In this they resemble the capricci of Marco Ricci. Panini also painted portraits, including one of Pope Benedict XIV. As a young man, Panini for SAJ trained in his native town of Piacenza, under Giuseppe Natali and Andrea Galluzzi, and later the stage designer Francesco Galli-Bibiena. In 1711, he moved to Rome, where he studied drawing with Benedetto Luti. In Rome Panini became famous as a decorator of palaces, including the Villa Patrizi (1719–1725), the Palazzo de Carolis (1720), and the Seminario Romano (1721–1722). In 1719, Panini was admitted to the Congregazione dei Virtuosi al Pantheon. He taught in Rome at the Accademia di San Luca and the Académie de France, where he influenced Jean-Honoré Fragonard. In 1754, he served as the principal of the Accademia di San Luca. Panini died in Rome on 21 October 1765.Panini's studio included Hubert Robert and his son Francesco Panini. His style influenced other vedutisti, such as his pupil Antonio Joli, as well as Canaletto and Bernardo Bellotto, who sought to meet the need of visitors for painted "postcards" depicting the Italian environs.Some British landscape painters, such as Marlow, Skelton and Wright of Derby, also imitated his capricci. His paintings sell for up to 1.2Million Euro.

Claude Le Lorrain Gelee, French, 1600-1682. This painting is an exquisite example of Lorrain genius. It is oil on canvas 31" by 24" (79cm by 61cm), signed lower right. Provenance: It is likely painted in Rome, and exhibited throughout Europe. Documented to be from the collection of Robert Batke, circa 1888 in Germany. Acquisition by Batke, in Berlin, numerous generations back. Passed on to his son Richard Batke, it was inherited by Richards widow, the present Cecilia M Freed, with other Batke holdings. Claude Gellee, who was called Lorrain after his native province of Lorraine, was born in 1600 at Chamagne, France, near Nancy. He settled in Rome perhaps as early as 1613. He spent nearly all his adult life there. When a young man, he worked in the household of Agostino Tassi, the landscape and marine painter, in some menial function, either as a pastry cook or a general factotum. We know that he was in Rome at the time and continued to live there, working with Poussin and Salvator Rosa. His early work was chiefly in fresco, of which little remains, but his fame is based on landscape canvases, often with biblical or mythological subjects. Patronized principally by the Italian nobility, he also enjoyed an international reputation. Together with Poussin he is responsible for the classical revival in French landscape painting of the seventeenth century. Among the many later painters influenced by his work was Turner. He died in 1682.
