Winslow Homer Civil War Art:
The illustration at right is a Winslow Homer illustration
Flag Officer Stringham. The illustration is from a Mathew Brady
Photograph, and is on the cover of the September 14, 1861 edition of
Harper's Weekly. The image shows Homer's careful and detailed lithography
work in converting the Mathew Brady photograph into a black and white
drawing that could be printed in the newspaper. This is an excellent
example of the lithographers work at its best.
