Busch, Alvina. Art History Book, 1888 | Illinois History and Lincoln Collections
Alvina Busch was a school teacher in Champaign County in the late nineteenth century. This volume is her notebook from an art history class she took as a student in Pennsylvania. The fly page shows her address as Ogontz, Pa., but little else is known about her.
The notebook contains her lecture notes from the course, including sections on color, Florentine art, the works of Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Correggio, and Michelangelo, and the Italian, Spanish, Flemish, Dutch, and Venetian schools.
