“Men of the Civil War”
Saturday, July 1 – Thursday, July 27
Donald Regan (1934-2016) a Waterbury native, long time resident of Middlebury, and most recently Oxford, CT. He graduated in 1964 from Paier College of Art (New Haven) and was member of the Connecticut Society of Portrait Artists, Lyme Academy and Watertown Art League.
The inspiration for this series of paintings was to put faces with the famous names we often hear and read about in Civil War history. Among the portraits are paintings of Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, General Grant, General Sherman, General Robert E. Lee, and native of Oxford, CT – Col. John Lyman Chattfield.
