Description

George Rickey was the Artist in Residence at Knox College from 1940-1941. It was then that he completed this painting as a study for the mural <em>The Offer of Education</em>. &nbsp; Though Rickey was considered American he lived in and was educated in Europe. Due to this, the Midwestern landscape appears idealized in his painting. Though Rickey focused on painting at the beginning of his career, he later earned fame for his kinetic sculptures.
