Portrait of Horace Mann

Mark Dunning's avatar Mark Dunning

My proposal for Art Prize is to paint a head and shoulder portrait of a self educated scholar, from American history. (The Honorable Horace Mann.) Mann, known as the father of American education, visited Europe observing its educational methods and conditions. In this country, he grew to make a giant impact on educational reform. My visual rendering, will focus attention, on the details, of the work of art, in the background, as well as the figurative ones, in the foreground.
