Rod Chase - Jefferson's Monticello

Standing in Monticello’s Entrance Hall transported me into Stephen Ambrose’s book, Undaunted Courage. Artifacts from the Lewis and Clark Expedition – Indian headdresses and weapons to fossils and animal mounts – surrounded us. Jefferson was an amazing visionary, which is evident in his belief in the people of the United States.

Jefferson’s Monticello features the west front of the house from across a fish pond. The reference photo was shot from a kneeling, almost prone position giving the impression that the pond is much bigger than it really is. Many of the monuments in my work are painted from this low vantage point making them appear larger than life. I “lighted” some oil lamps to create the scene as it might have looked 200 years ago. Jefferson arose early in the morning and would write for hours before mounting his horse to inspect his gardens and farms. - RC

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.

2. We apologize that there are some artists who do not allow on-line listings of their prices.

In either event, when you email for pricing, you must include your phone number and location. We'll get back to you quickly.


If you are having difficulty using our "email for price" or "bid" forms, please call us or switch to another internet browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc.)
