I just came back from a short trip to Washington, D.C. One of my favorite places to visit there is the National Portrait Gallery, which shares quarters with the newly named Smithstonian Museum of American Art. It was at the latter that I saw this painting by the artist W. Herbert Dunton (1878-1936). The painting is entitled Fall in the Foothills. Dunton worked in the Southwest, principally Taos, but I thought of the Alaskan Mama Grizzly when I saw this painting. (Here is a much better image of the painting.) I wonder if Sarah has seen this? She would certainly like the Museum of American Art.
