Winslow Homer Civil War Art:
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.
