The Red-Haired Beauty by the great muralist Edwin Blashfield is a small painting with a big message about the importance of art, about access to beauty as a public good and a democratic value.  It is also a painting that speaks to many other works in the forthcoming exhibition, American Made: Paintings and Sculpture from the DeMell Jacobsen Collection, stimulating conversation among the artists represented—from the Hudson River School to John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, Grant Wood and others—about the nature and purposes of art and beauty in American society.
