Birthday Wishes to ARTHUR DOVE who was born

August 2, 1880 in Canandaigua, New York.  After

becoming well known as an illustrator for major magazines

in New York City, Dove became America's first artist

to produce purely abstract paintings.  "He extracted the

essential forms of a scene from nature."  He died at the age

of 66 in Huntington, New York (November 23, 1946).
