About the Event

Susan G. Cumbey, Director of Fort Ward Museum and Historic Site, uncovers the life of a renowned American artist. Praised during his own time for rendering “what he has seen and known,” Winslow Homer’s experience as a special artist for Harper’s Weekly  early in the Civil War inspired him to begin painting scenes of army life with a realism paralleled by photographers of the day. 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 response, this event has been postopned. We will email guests with the new dates and times as soon as they become available.
