Filed under: Item of the Day — Jason Onerheim @ 12:01 am

Today is the last day of Black History Month, thus Item of the Day would like to present a newly acquired painting by African-American artist George W. Castone. It is titled “River Scene” and was painted in 1914. He was born in Missouri, but moved to St. Paul and lived there until his death in 1967.

This painting is on view until June, 2017 at the James J. Hill house as part of the Raymond and Ruth Reister collection exhibit.

For more information or to purchase a photograph of this item, view this painting in our collections database.
