Waud pays homage to my favorite Civil War artist.
Alfred Waud's work stands out for a simplicity
and freshness that allows the description of the war
to be accurately described with the fewest strokes.
His ink washes are especially remarkable in this
aspect as witness by the one below showing Yankee
scouts ovbserving the Amry of Northern Virginia
fording the Potomac on the moonlit night.
Waud will be a resource for exhibitions of American
Civil War art past and present, created and
photographic. Check here for visual interpretations
that will be developed with Project Plug Ugly.
