trouvée: the daisy field

This photograph is one of several I purchased recently on eBay. Taken in the environs surrounding Bala Cynwyd and Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania, the photograph came from a album once belonging to the family of the artist Grace Thorpe Gemberling Keast. Keast was born in Philadelphia in 1903, studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and exhibited in the Salons of America and Corcoran Biennials. (Stay tuned in the coming weeks for a few more from the Gemberling album!)

Lots to mention this week:

* the White House spring garden tours
* some notable Pulitzer Prize winners: Tinkers (fiction) and The First Tycoon (biography)
* and the Bibliography of the History of Art (now available free of charge via the Getty!)

I am headed out of town for a week, but have scheduled a few goodies for you in my absence.

Enjoy...and happy weekend!
