The Museum’s Cotopaxi by DeWitt Clinton Boutelle and Frederic Church just received a surface cleaning and frame repairs. The painting is a slightly smaller version than the Detroit Institute of Art’s canvas. Scholarly consensus is that Church commissioned this copy from Boutelle to serve as a model for an engraving (never realized) and sent to England. Church, largely dissatisfied with Boutelle’s copy, repainted much of the canvas. • • #cotopaxi #rpm #readingpublicmuseum #rdgmuseum #dewittclintonboutelle #fredericchurch @diadetroit #rpmcollection #rpmvaultShare Your Thoughts
