    This painter seems technically well equipped with, and is oriented predominantly towards the realistic style and the classic one. At the same time, he experiences a very slight abstraction, especially in uniform backgrounds, where he inserts the measured geometry. Personally, if I had to choose a painting, including those shown above, I would say definitely “Patience,” in which the shadows of chairs form a beautiful abstract suggestion.

    “Death of Caroline Reeder”

    From Mormon Pioneer Overland Travel:

    Between 1847 and 1868, Mormon emigrants traveling in more than 300 companies departed from various places and headed for the Salt Lake Valley. More than 60,000 LDS Church members traveled in these companies — some traveling by foot, some in wagons, and some pulling handcarts. http://history.lds.org/overlandtravels/home

    James G. Willie Company, 1856 – Company Information: 4th handcart company which had about 500 individuals, 100 handcarts, and 5 wagons in the company when it began its journey from the outfitting post at Iowa City, Iowa. Caroline Reeder’s name appears on a list of individuals known to have traveled with that company. http://history.lds.org/overlandtravels/companyDetail?lang=eng&companyId=319

    From http://www.findagrave.com:

    Caroline Reeder
    Birth: Sep. 24, 1839
    Linstead Parva
    Suffolk, England
    Death: Oct. 15, 1856
    Converse County
    Wyoming, USA

    Daughter of David Reeder & Lydia Balls Reeder. Part of the Willie Handcart Company. Her brother Robert Reeder wrote: “Our rations were growing shorter and we reduced them by common consent from day to day. Nights were getting colder and some would sit down by the roadside and die. My younger sister, Caroline, 17 years old, after traveling all day and seeing the camp being made for the night took off her apron to tie some sage brush in to bring into the camp. She sat down to rest, leaning on her bundle, exhausted. They found her chilled and dying and carried her to camp. She died without gaining consciousness. She, too, was placed in an unmarked grave near Three Crossings—Sweetwater. She died the evening of 15 October 1856. Her death was another real loss to us but we must hurry on in threatening weather and colder nights on the Windriver Pass.” http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=33342239

    It has also been well documented that a number of the Mormon settlers when they were down to almost nothing would dress as Indians. Then they would attack other wagon trains, kill everyone but the children and take everything including the children and the local Indians would get the blame. Jesus in America? I don’t think so.

    • Bruce said

      That may be true, Don, but my point was about the poignancy of the death of a 17-year-old girl so far from home.

      • Don Hyde said

        And I was speaking of Jesus in America. The image and who painted and why it makes my blood boil.
