"I'm in West Haven, CT tonight and 1400 miles from home.
Today I visited The Philadelphia Museum of Art thinking I could view one of my all time favorite paintings. I thought that Daniel Garber's painting of his daughter, Tanis, was in Philadelphia's permanent collection but not so. I saw the painting there 15 years ago, just a few months after viewing it at The Indianapolis Museum of Art. I was disappointed today but still was able to view several Old Masters' good paintings and that made the trip worthwhile. I have found a bad copy of "Tanis" on the web for you to see but of course it seems like nothing compared to the real thing. It's a large painting (60" x 46")."
"Tanis" by Daniel Garber 1910 or 1916
