Kind of sad……..he did so much for America………….but felt the American world was not for him.


NEW-YORK HISTORICAL SOCIETY • World War 1

The current show of paintings of World War 1 are mostly of the tragedies and horror of the war……….too gruesome for me to include in this blog……..so I will only share a few that are “bearable to view”.

“Over Here…..Over There”…….Norman Rockwell’s famous painting of four doughboys ……………singing around the campfire……….is how the mass media presented the war to Americans.


This image was so successful it appeared on the sheet music for George M. Cohan’s popular song.

Henry Howard Houston Woodward………..painted by Violet Oakley…….was a fighter pilot in the service of the french Army.  His plane was reported missing on April 1, 1918.  The remains of his plane and his body were found a year later.


The interior of a Hospital Tent, 1918……….painted by John Singer Sargent……..while touring the western front and painted soldiers in non-combative activities.

THE RETURN of PRIVATE DAVIS from the ARGONE…….painted by John Curry.  William Davis was John’s high school friend……but his body was returned three years after his death.  It took John 17 years to complete this painting………so deep was his grief.

THOMAS JEFFERSON vs. TRUMP

This is a bronze plaque just around the corner from Trump Tower.

DONALD has probably stepped on it hundreds of times!
