W.P. Snyder. "The Columbia College Regatta - The Henly Four." From Harper’s Weekly. New York, June 1, 1878. 13 3/4 x 9 1/4. Wood engraving.

During the Civil War, illustrated newspapers like Harper’s Weekly provided the American public with current and accurate pictures of the war. These newspapers continued to document the events, scenes, and personages of the following years, with great popularity. Many of the illustrations were done by important artists such as Winslow Homer, Thomas Nast, and A.B. Frost. This is a wonderfully detailed engraving of the many competing teams, with onlookers in row boats and sail boats lining the banks of the river based upon the drawing of W.P. Snyder.
