"Why don't I see myself in the art?" Grade school students can ask some pretty tough questions. We may not have all the answers, but we can start by making them feel comfortable raising sensitive issues. We want students to know that art is for everyone. Our Pre-K–8 education program helps make students of all backgrounds feel welcome by incorporating racially and ethnically inclusive teaching strategies. Our program also helps build visual literacy skills so that students may better interpret media within our image-saturated culture. Will you help us continue our work in art education?

Comments: I have acquired a Modigliani oil on board approx.11 by 10 inches . It appears to be a original done first of the Beatrice Hastings portrait of a sitting Hastings which is currently on exhibit at the Barnes Foundation ..I have included images of relevant subject research..It is signed ,and on the back are period labels which indicate the name and date of the subject as well as what appears to be instructions to Paul Guillaume his art dealer ,it is also dated 1915.. There are slight differences between the two paintings ...But it is seen that the basic subjects are the same.. On the reverse of the piece in addition to the labels is a Nazi sign ,which prior to WW2 was considered a sign of good will by many people." significant religious symbol of our remote ancestors" in the Jewish faith..As you may know Modigliani was Jewish... I have previously sold a Modigliani in 2014 ( which I will be glad to provide documentation if required ) This new acquisition might be a interesting addition to the oil on canvas at the Barnes Foundation or to any serious collector . It is well known that Modigliani lived with Hastings during this time and in many ways was prone to erratic behavior and painted many times and disposed of a large amount of art through this behavior .. I would be happy to discuss this with your people ,,My contact information is included Thank You Anthony Stoisich Anthony Stoisich 631-338-8113 firstname.lastname@example.org
