until June 30

Edward Beyer (1820–1865) was a German landscape painter who was active in the United States and became known for his depiction of the Antebellum South.

He visited Virginia in 1854 and stayed until about 1856 or 1857 sketching and painting a number of scenes that would appear in his “Album of Virginia” (1857)

Edward Beyer eventually returned to Germany and died at Munich in 1865.

These lithographs are on view through the generosity of a private collector.
