Victoria Chick, New Mexico-based figurative contemporary artist and early 19th/20th century print collector, talks about American scene painter Georges Schreiber (1904-1977). Originally from Belgium, Schreiber became a United States citizen in 1928. For 3 years, beginning in 1936, he made trips touring the U.S painting and sketching Americans in all the states. He exhibited these paintings, called “Panorama of America”, at the Associated American Artists gallery. His show was so successful that all the works were sold before the show even opened. He was accepted into exhibitions at major museums during this period of the ‘30s and ‘40s when American Scene Painting and Regionalism were popular. 

Pictured lithograph: "Going Home", 1945. Music featured on this segment is 'Strollin' & Singin' by Domingo DeGrazia, from the album "Please Remember Me" that features the music of artist Ted DeGrazia.
