Edward Beyer and the Jeffersonian Landscape: A Lecture by Jeffrey Ruggles
Presented by VMFA Statewide, Williamsburg Contemp. Art Ctr., and Williamsburg Reg. Lib. The artist Edward Beyer came to the U.S. from Germany after the Revolution of 1848. For several years Beyer, a graduate of the Düsseldorf Academy, traveled around the northeast U.S. and Ohio, sketching, painting oil landscapes, and exhibiting a moving panorama. In the mid-1850s he traveled to Virginia where he made panoramic oils in the western part of the state. For a number of towns Beyer’s view remains the best single historical representation. In 1857-58 he produced Album of Virginia, a portfolio of 41 lithographic views. In the Album, especially, Beyer’s vision was that of a European liberal who saw the world as a Jeffersonian idealist.
