Theme or No Theme?

Before we get to this week's art, let me tell you about the free online games on Artsology. There's so much there!!

And one more thing... if you live near our nation's capital, you might want to check out FotoWeek, a celebration of photography taking place during November 15-22, 2008.

There's no theme for this week (unless you can spot one).
The Fish Bucket
by Gifford Beal, 1924

Alma Sewing
by Francis Criss, ca. 1935

Legend and Fact
by Willem de Kooning, 1940

A detail

(OK, it's not exactly a theme, but they were all painted in the U.S. during the first half of the 20th century. Both Criss and de Kooning were born in England but moved to the U.S. I can think of a couple other things two out of the three paintings have in common. You?)
