John Ward Dunsmore (1856-1945) was a realistic and accurate genre painter focused on the American Revolution and Early Republic. His work kept the spirit of the struggle alive for the nation in the early 20th Century. Through a chronological display of the Revolutionary War this exhibition returns 47 recently conserved paintings to their rightful place in the iconography of American culture. Come and enjoy a part of the nation’s historical imagery.
