Current GOAL

Please drop this item in rural OR Premium Member Only caches.  Do not place it in an urban cache or abandon it at a caching event.  Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; the bag keeps the trackable clean and prevents tangling with other items.  Otherwise, take the travel bug anywhere you wish.  No permission is needed to leave the U.S.

Travel bug photos in the logs are appreciated.  I will re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item

MuenierLalecondecatechisme

This is one of a series of travel bugs made to recognize paintings seen, and admired by the bug owner. A digital copy of this painting was downloaded from the internet. The copy was reduced in size and proportions cropped to accommodate the laminating materials available to the owner. Regrettably these processes diminish the effort of the artist. One truly must see the original in person to fully appreciate the work. The text below is a mixture of my own observations and material gleaned from the internet (mostly Wikipedia and Web Gallery).

Jules Alexis Muenier (1863-1942) was a French academic painter and photographer.  With the introduction of photography as a method of capturing the daily life of people many artists felt that their livelihood would suffer.  However, Muenier would become one of the leading proponents for the use of photography, as a method of creating studies, to add important details to the final works.  This painting, The Catechism Lesson (in French, La Leçon de Catéchisme), was seen in the Musee D'Orsay, in Paris, in October 2012.  It shows one boy reciting his lesson to the rural priest, two girls predictably listening and studying and a second boy ignoring all but the flowers behind the bench.  This painting made me smile.
