Contest #570: Olson House, Cushing, Maine, USA

The painting at the heart of this week’s contest has NO free licenses available. “Christina’s World” is owned by MOMA, who is known to track down those who post it without permission/paying with cease and desist files, a drama your humble contest organizer here simply does not need in his life.

I’ll let you go take a look on their site here.

The young lady in the painting seen crawling in the field is often referred to as having been a polio victim, but according to a source no less than Wikipedia, was actually probably afflicted with the disease mentioned in the hint, aka “Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease”.

The house has been restored to match the painting and you can visit it.

Those who found this place included:

  • Phil Ower
  • Abcdefg Hijkl
  • Garfield
  • hhgygy
  • Martin de Bock
  • Paul Voestermans
  • Rob de Wolff
  • Lighthouse

and after the hint:

  • LawnBoy
  • gscrp
  • David Kozina
  • Chris Nason
  • Hilde Lambeir
  • Yakubi Dergahi

And thus ends the 561-570 series (forever known from now on as “The Famous Painting Series”). Hearty congratulations to our winners: Phil Ower, Abcdefg Hijkl, and hhgygy, all with 19 points (Dibble House proved too hard for everyone but Walter_V_R, who gets an honorable mention).
