    Question for anyone:

    The National Museum of the Army Reserve, Fort McPherson, Georgia, recently found an original Lawrence Wilbbur oil on canvas in a Washington DC Army office. The painting depicts an army Corporal in fatigue jacket, helmet, holding an M-1 rifle at port arms. The Liberty Bell is in the background. This was painted sometime between July 1953 and October 1954. It was used as a symbol of the US Army Reserve (Strength in Reserve). It was made into bronze plaques that were placed on all Army Reserve Centers in the 1950 to 1970’s timeframe.

    Does anyone have addirtional information on this painting?

    We have five original oil paintings, portraits of my grandparents, great uncle, my brother and myself as young children. Is there a collection of Wilbur’s works? I am wondering what to do with these paintings in the future.
