Harvard Art Museums, Cambridge, MA

In his mid twenties, Homer worked for Harper’s Weekly, sketching the soldiers of the Civil War as illustrations for reports. These drawings are shown in this exhibition alongside later oils and watercolours, revealing how Homer’s years as a war artist informed his understanding of perspective.
