One Response to “Edward Lamson Henry (1841 – 1913)”

  1. Bruce said

    Henry apparently had some emotional attachment to the Westover Plantation on the James River in Virginia, painting it twice: “The Old Westover House” and “Westover, Virginia.” The two paintings are nearly identical and portray the period during the Civil War when the house and grounds were used at the headquarters of the Union Fifth Corps. Note the damage to the far wing and to the fence in front of the property in both paintings. See the signal team on top of the house in one version and the sentry/sniper up there in the other.

    There’s an interesting account of this artist and these paintings in “Landscape of Slavery: The Plantation in American Art” by Angela D. Mack and Stephen G. Hoffius. If you are lucky like I was, go to http://books.google.com/books?id=wgc6Hr2Pg2IC, click “Preview this book,” and see if you can pick up the story on page 53. Or, you can always buy the book or see if the library has it!
