Winslow Homer Civil War Art:

Officer Stringham

The illustration at right is a Winslow Homer illustration of 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.
