New at the Chas.R.Knight Website

The Knight website has been recently updated. The initial image has become a 
gallery of multiple images . Just click to enlarge, then go back and a new 
artwork will appear.
       Important information on the new tour is there also. Now at the Mesa 
Museum, the tour will go across the country. Included is Knight's masterpiece, 
"Tiger and Peacock", illustrated here. Knight was a compulsive decorator and 
his painting of "Manchurian Tiger Hunters' shown here shows this off well. He 
did a sculpture of the same scene that rivals anything Barye ever did. Worth a 
       Also included in the show are a series of landscapes Knight painted 
along the rivers and palm hummocks of Florida. As far as I know they've never 
been published, which is quite unfortunate. They are jewels. One expects a 
Uintathere to stumble into the sun at any time.
       If you haven't yet visited the other Knight website at the AMNH, you 
certainly should. Takes a while to load, but worth it. The only place you can 
see Knight's first restoration, Elotherium, from 1894. DV
