Now, that is one monumental piece of kitsch. It will be interesting to see if the museum chooses to display it, and whether there will be objections to the partial undress of the central figure within the context of a hall of inherent interest to children. Let the fun begin!

I am the 3 times Great Granddaughter of Julia Ward Howe. The family never thought much of John Elliott's work. The Redwood Library in Newport RI has a few of his pieces which the family tries to ignore. I have a small landscape of his, painted on wood hanging in a corner of my house where, according to my mother, "it can do no harm". Multiple generations tried to get rid of this piece-it came to me with items from the estate of my greatgrandmother. It was amusing to see this article about the mural.
