Rachel Clearfield It’s a gorgeous spring morning. And you can see this pleasing and alluring morning through my eyes, for I have captured it in my painting to recall and relive this pleasing morning, each time I reflect and cherish the good times in my life :) http://rachel-clearfield.blogspot.com/2014/04/french-lace-morning.html Browse through my original works of art: www.rachelclearfield.com.

Past Exhibitions

Vanishing Frontier: Rookwood, Farny, and the American Indian

October 20, 2007 to January 20, 2008

The Cincinnati Art Museum is proud to bring you an exciting exhibition entitled The Vanishing Frontier: Rookwood, Farny, and the American Indian, which explores the art and history of Native Americans as depicted by Cincinnati’s Rookwood Pottery Company and painter Henry Farny. Stunning ceramic portraits from the James J. Gardner Collection of Rookwood and exquisite Farny opaque watercolors from the Art Museum’s holdings as well as private collections offer a compelling view of the American Indian during the final days of the frontier. You have an opportunity to journey back in time when Americans were feeling the sentiment of loss for the frontier, and the Native American way of life was coming to an end. Also on view are American Indian artifacts from the Art Museum’s famous collection and the original photographic images that inspired the Rookwood ceramics.
