Resting, by Mathias J. Alten
Lisa Haan (12/19/2008)
Does anyone have a picture (or know where I can find one online) of Alten's "Resting", 1934, 32" x 42"? A colleague of mine has a portion of this pic (a man resting under a beautiful tree) displayed on a bookmark she purchased at the Grand Rapids Art Museum years ago, and I'd love to see the entire scape. I thought the picture was donated to the Museum in 1982 (by Anna F. McCauley), but I don't believe it's still on display there. Thanks in advance for your input!

Does anyone know if Mr. Alten painted stage backdrops? Also, was he ever known for putting churches in his work? We have two backdrops, believed painted locally and are trying to find out who the artist is. Thanks for any feedback.
