    THIS PAINTING IS BEING POSTED FOR COMPARISON WITH HELLOKITTY'S DONIPHAN PORTRAIT OF A LITTLE GIRL.

    WHEN MY RESEARCH IS COMPLETE ON THIS TOPIC, I WILL POST THE BODY OF OUR DONIPHAN FINDINGS on the hellokitty6811's 'Dorsey Doniphan' Show and Tell. That Show and Tell can be found at:

    This image and accompanying text comes to us from the great courtesy of the Registrar @ the Curator of the U.S. Treasury Dept., Washington, D.C. Where I have added text, I have placed it in brackets.

    [Treasury text follows below. Full bibliographical citation of some sources that Treasury quotes is unavailable. The text comes courtesy of the Treasury Department. Original Disposition: Mr. J. Edgar Hoover, Dept. of Justice, FBI, 3/14/34. Current disposition: Believed to be in the Treasury Department Collection.]

    WPA.1934.7 “Internal Revenue Building”, 1934, oil on canvas
    Frame: 35 ½ x 30 ¼ x 1”
    Sight: 29 3/8 x 24 3/8”

    Label on reverse reads “Public Works of Art Project/Room 168-Treasury Building/Artist: Dorsey Doniphan/Title: Internal Revenue Building/Disposition: Mr. J.E. Hoover 3/14/34/Dept. Of Justice”.

    Label text: Edwin Dorsey Doniphan was born in Washington, D.C. His art training began at the Corcoran School of Art, where he studied under the influential American painter Edmund Tarbell, one of Boston's leading artists at the turn of the century. He went on to study at the School for the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. While at the Corcoran, he won a gold medal for his work. Doniphan is best known for his city scenes of Washington, but he also painted portraits, as he stated in his autobiography written for the Treasury's Section of Painting and Sculpture: "[I] painted portraits of a number of persons, some of whom would like to be prominent, but [I] prefer to paint oxen."

    Doniphan's painting was completed in Washington, D.C. for the Public Works of Art Project. A newspaper article at the time characterizes his work as "excellent."

    Doniphan's work has been exhibited at the Corcoran Biennial, in most states and in several foreign countries. Doniphan's works done for the Department of Treasury's Section of Fine Arts include two murals at the Marlinton, West Virginia, Post Office and easel paintings in many federal buildings. He was a member of the Society of Washington Artists and the Watercolor Club of Washington, as well as the American Artists' Professional League.

      Hi, Lundy! Yes, I had a fine Fourth of July observance - did you? I see from Manikin's 'Peggy' posting that you're underwater. I'm sorry. I hope your home doesn't flood and that you are all safe - and that you even find a way to enjoy the high water! Regards, miKKo

    12. miKKoChristmas11 miKKoChristmas11, 8 years ago
      I'm sorry to hear about your struggles with the building. Carpentry is a trade that requires more than skill - MUCH PATIENCE required. I know that you've got both the skills and the patience, and I know you'll make everything work out fine. God bless and keep you. I'll keep your project in my prayers. miKKo

      Hi, Yuko! Many thanks for your appreciation and very kind comments! I am so glad that you like these paintings. The artist seems to have vanished since he painted these, and it is very good to hear that someone still appreciates his work, sir. I love so many of your treasures, and I hope you will post many more of them! miKKo
