Soldier Artist: Conrad Wise Chapman
March 15, 2014 - May 25, 2014
An ardent Southerner, Conrad Wise Chapman (1842–1910), unable to reconcile himself to the Confederacy’s loss, traveled to Mexico for a time after the Civil War. Eventually, he moved his family to Richmond, Virginia, and in 1898 sold the paintings in this exhibition to what has become the Museum of the Confederacy. They remain an important part of that museum’s collections to this day.
