Honoring Ancestors Past & Future

May 23, 2016

Self portrait, by George Caleb Bingham​

 

One good reason to make art today: for future generations can look back and be inspired.

The work of my great-great-great uncle, Luminist painter, George Caleb Bingham, connects me in a deeper way with American art history. His paintings are a time machine to the days of our ancestors.
 

Like many artists, his work was fully appreciated with time. Who will see your work decades, or even centuries from now?

 Came face to face with one work, "Shooting for the Beef", on display at the Brooklyn Museum. Never thought I'd see it person, counting it as a miracle. Love you uncle, thanks for creating all of your amazing works, and giving us a glimpse into your time.
