Over the next couple of days I'll be shown you some of the dioramas from the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural Science.  I'm taking an art class there now.  This is one of several dioramas by the artist James Perry Wilson.  It's hard to tell where the painting stops and the foreground begins.  The preparator of the foreground is Ralph C. Morrill.

You can read about James Perry Wilson HERE in an on line book written by Michael Anderson, the preparatory at the museum now.

  1. It's amazing how they can do that. Enjoy your art class there!
    I still remember when I was in the primary grades in Chicago our teacher said each of us had to make a diorama. I had never even heard the word diorama and I had no idea how to make one.
