Happy birthday, Bingham.

Bingham, Fur Traders Descending the Mississippi, 1845


George Caleb Bingham was born on this day in 1811.

To the beautiful belongs an endless variety. It is seen not only in symmetry and elegance of form, in youth and health, but is often quite as fully apparent in decrepit old age. It is found in the cottage of the peasant as well as the palace of kings.
