Arthur Dove

Naples Yellow Morning by Arthur Dove
oil on canvas

This painting by Arthur Dove is part of a traveling exhibition that is currently on display at Wichita Art Museum.  It is called Making American Artists:  Stories from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts 1776-1976 and was curated by American Federation of Arts.  The art in this exhibition is incredible and I found Dove's painting particularly captivating.  I ordered the book below, which arrived two days later (thanks Amazon).

This painting is not part of the exhibit, but it is part of the Wichita Art Museum's permanent collection, and just as captivating.
