Also, is that his daughter? What is the symbolism with the costume or is that accurate to the era? The gun stock is on the mark, but is everything else (including the cat)?

Posted by: Brian in New Orleans at March 12, 2018 09:40 AM (UBzPO)

62 I've seen a number of George Caleb Bingham's paintngs, such as the Daniel Boone one. The outstanding point for me is his use of color to portray light in the sky, on the objects in the paintings and, where appropriate, the white clothing of some of the figures. That last doesn't apply in this picture.

Another aspect of many of Bingham's paintings is that they are pleasant scenes. The raftmen have to work hard but they also enjoy life: playing cards, dancing a jig, relaxing on a gentle current, as above. The crowd scenes in a town are busy but not disruptive and there is an individuality in each of the figures. I can see why the artist's popularity grew in the 20th century when a sense of nostalgia added to the attractiveness of the scenes.

65 Wiki art on this painting:


One of Bingham's most famous paintings, this work is owned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Painted around 1845 in the style called luminism by some historians of American art, it was originally entitled, French-Trader, Half-breed Son. The American Art Union thought the title potentially controversial and renamed it when it was first exhibited. It reflected the reality of fur traders' common marriages with Native American women; in Canada the Metis ethnic group formed as a result. The painting is haunting for its evocation of an era in American history note, in particular, the liberty cap worn by the older man. The animal in the boat is widely accepted as a bear cub and not a cat.[1]




Posted by: Vic We Have No Party at March 12, 2018 09:40 AM (mpXpK)

66 Wikipedia says it's a bear cub, not a cat. I'm not sure if I'm believing bear cub, but clicking through to the full resolution image makes it clear it's definitely not a cat. At full size, it looks more canine than feline. I could believe a grey fox.

Seriously, in all my reading about men on the frontier, I don't recall any travelling with a cat. In a cabin or barn, yes, but not away from the homestead. Dogs were the common companion.

Posted by: joncelli, because somebody had to at March 12, 2018 09:33 AM (RD7QR)

It looks more like a small dog-the chin is mostly hidden but you can see that it's pretty long. I'm not convinced it's a bear cub, since bears don't have pointy ears.

Agree that a more barge like flat bottom boat would be appropriate in that environment, but there sure doesn't seem to be any visual clue here that this is a wide boat. For example the "table" perspective indicates it goes across the beam, where the figure resting on it covers most of the table.

.The English and Americans in the east used them in shallow water to hunt ducks. They would lay in wait for a flock of ducks to land and blast them with their *punt* gun which was strapped to the front of the boat. Punt guns were extremely large shotguns with ~2 inch bores and fired about a pound of shot. They could take out an entire flock of ducks with one shot.

Having sat through several of them in the last few months, both the pastor and his assistant pastor (or what used to be called the curate) at my church give very good sermons. Illuminating, sensible and actually practical. No politics, thank goodness.

The time change was not my friend yesterday.

My bass player at the time would end up being stuck at my house for 3 days. We were running out of cigarettes and other stuff on night 1, so we went out on a suicide mission in the antichrist and got stuck in a huge drift. Some dude with a monster truck who was cruising by pulled us out. After that we just spent the next few days getting stoned and playing video games.

Most gorgeous spring ever though. It was like nature's pay-back for hte disaster of a winter. I remember they made a movie here in my town that spring (called "IQ", with the crazy plastic surgery chick Meg Ryan and Walter Matthau), which was a BIG event in our little town and boy did they ever get lucky on the tree blooms. It took practically a whole year for the movie to get finished and released and then my Mom, who is a gardening nut, called me and all she could talk about were the beauty of the trees.

Michael Gerson is a Bush family courtier, so of course he hate Trump and hates every conservative who supports him even more. The Bushes were supposed to own those votes! Another bit of evidence, as if we needed any, as to why actual conservative ideas always got squashed when the Bushes were in power. (Gerson gives away his claim to have always been an "evangelical" when he verbally shits on Billy Graham halfway through that article. that's a "tell".)

I used to read the Atlantic online occasionally, because even though they were lib they allowed a comment section which at times was interesting. Now, recently, they have banned ALL comments of ANY kind on ANY article forever. They couldn't stand the fact that occasionally someone would take issue with some of their liberal stands.

So, I don't think I will ever be looking at the Atlantic much, ever again.

Aren't we all descended from Charlemagne or Genghis Khan or Attila anyway?"

The markers for Genghis can be found in about a quarter of the males who live in areas once conquered by the mongols, which was a huge chunk of the old world of course.

But the real claim comes from an interesting scientific anomaly - in any mostly homogeneous population, after roughly 1,000 years all the descendants of the original population will show equal genetic inheritance from ALL members of the original population, due to the mixing that occurs over so many generations. Or in other words, anyone living in Western Europe today, who's descended from people who lived in Western Europe, almost certainly has some genetic markers from Charlemagne's family. (or more properly put, the Carolingians)

I saw this come into play with Romney. Ex., "Romney's a Mormon" or "Romney doesn't support a total ban on abortion, only certain limitations", so they just sat it out.


So liberals had this easy "kill button" at hand - just publish some past sin of the conservative candidate and a chunk of the conservative voters will just sit it out, giving liberals the victory since they don't care about how depraved their guy is.

Now they are getting annoyed that the same old trick didn't work with Trump, although it did with Moore.

378 >>>>>Well, it's official: I just saw the first robin of the season, it is now Spring in Houston, Texas.

JJ: Do I need to get a 2nd witness for this to be official, or will you take my word for it?

379 Does anyone else find it interesting that the people who are all for aborting Downs syndrome children are also the people who are all up for animals having rights. How exactly does that work? Is there a dip in the 'has rights' curve somewhere between average person and a Chimpanzee?

380 32 Can't decide if that's a small dog or a big cat in the prow there.

The "prow" is the extreme forward upright edge of the hull - it's a structural component. The forward area of the boat where that cat/dog/bear is sitting is the "bow".

381 30 Its behind WSJ paywall, but seems we are moving assets out of Turkey.

"WASHINGTON—The U.S. military has sharply reduced combat operations at Turkey’s Incirlik air base and is considering permanent cutbacks there, according to U.S. officials, a shift they said was driven by tensions between Washington and Ankara."

Thank God. Merkel, and thus the EU, already made a deal with the devil with Ankara. We need to get our asses out of Turkey ASAP. Guy is an Islamist. Another country bites the dust.

382 Back to the painting. Mrs. JTB pointed out the animal looks like a schipperke which were commonly used on canal barges and similar for rodent control and pets. The are compact little dogs with pointy ears, so she could be correct. Looking closely, I think she is right.

The things you learn here!! That explains the leash too...which is more evidence for a dog.

383 One of my favorite paintings. I used to have a framed print of it hanging on the wall in the living room of an old apartment I lived in.
