Winslow Homer Civil War Art:

Rebel General P. G. T. Beauregard

The illustration at right is a Winslow Homer lithograph of rebel general P. G. T. Beauregard. It is made from a formal portrait photograph, so we can see that in April of 1861, Homer was still being used by Harper's Weekly to make lithographs from photographs. This role was decreasing, as Harper's was beginning to rely on Homer more as an illustrator than a lithographer.

P. G. T. Beauregard would go on to become one of the Confederacy's most celebrated generals.
