Abraham Lincoln



The National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania held its grand opening this year on February 12th-Abraham Lincoln´s birthday. Naturally, all eyes were on John´s magnificent life-size painting, commissioned expressly for the museum´s permanent collection. A definitive portrayal, it captures all of Lincoln´s humanity while reflecting our continuing awe of the man´s towering achievements.... We realize that only a few select collectors will have the wall space to accommodate a reproduction approaching the original´s dimensions; therefore, we also offer the work in a more accessible size. Published from the artist´s original oil painting.

He Returns Victorious - 1783



The General and Madame came home on Christmas Eve, and such a racket the servants made, for they were glad of their coming!" That lively account of George and Martha Washington´s post-war return to Mount Vernon was one of many contemporary sources John drew upon to bring this stirring scene to life. "I went to Mount Vernon in winter," he says, "and shot many rolls of film at every hour of the afternoon, looking for the most dramatic light. The roof is white now, but back then the shingles were red, so for a visual counterpoint I took the liberty of giving Washington a bold red manteau. You´ll notice there are no wreaths, candles or other festive display to greet the general this Christmas Eve. Decorating for the holidays did not become an established American tradition until the 19th century." Stretched size: 34"w x 15"h, published from the artist´s original oil painting. 100 signed by the artist and consecutively numbered.

Study For Abraham Lincoln: The Great Emancipator



In November 1864, President Lincoln was re-elected despite widespread war-weariness in the North. Sherman’s recent capture of Atlanta gave hope that the Civil War was near its end. The Great Emancipator nickname referred to Lincoln’s 1862 Emancipation Proclamation, a sweeping political move that freed slaves in territories not already under Union control.



Artist Dean Morrissey’s moving portrait captures the President at the close of the Civil War contemplating an unknown future for the United States. Lincoln was shot on April 14, 1865, a mere five days after Robert E. Lee’s surrender to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Courthouse. He died the next morning. The Great Emancipator, done with his earthly, practical duties, entered the realm of hero and legend.

Sweet Hour Of Prayer



I've had many comments about this painting over the years from those in the armed services. They have written me from the midst of battle and across the oceans. They have echoed the sentiments in this piece and have experienced similar scenarios while gathered together in faith, before embarking on their assignments.

The inspiration for this painting came from the words to the old hymn “Sweet Hour of Prayer.” It is believed the writer was William W. Walford, a blind priest in England.

Their eyes are closed for a reason. When we close our eyes we begin to rely on our other senses. As we close our eyes in prayer, we trade our physical sight for a spiritual kind of vision. These men represent the best in human nature. The part that says, "I can’t see what the future holds, but I know Who holds it.” Yes, there is beauty in the idea that by closing our eyes, we begin to see and that it was a humble blind minister who brought about greater vision for untold generations.

I’ve come to realize that history books have their story about which side won what battle, but there are times when each man and woman must become a warrior. Whether we win or lose these battles comes down to who we have become because of them. Wars are not always fought overseas and in far-away places, but also in the fleshy tables of our hearts.

The Promise Of Peace And Tranquility - Father Christmas During The Civil War



Add a little patriotic spirit to your Christmas celebration this year with Dean Morrissey’s "The Promise of Peace and Tranquility." After all, the holidays are the time when we focus on all we share and the blessings we have in common in this great country.

During the Civil War, artist Thomas Nast created a Yuletide first: a gift bearing Father Christmas visiting front-line troops, handing gifts out to soldiers and children. Nearly all the elements he included in that 1862 drawing of Santa continue to this day: his sleigh pulled by reindeer, a long white beard, a furry hat, collar and belt. Truly, the iconic American Santa. Thomas Nast's 1862 vision of a star-spangled Father Christmas embodied the spirit of a unified and prosperous nation in the face of the divisive Civil War.

What Dean Morrissey has so remarkably brought to full-color life is just how striking that star-spangled was and how timely the thought of a unified country can be. What could be better in the coming Christmas season than knowing Santa’s pulling for the red, white and blue, too?

This is the first in a series of paintings Morrissey will be doing on the history of Father Christmas and certainly a definitive holiday statement if there ever was one. Dean Morrissey's magical work shows that the spirit of Christmas and country never go out of style. Order your canvas or paper fine art edition today and enjoy the "The Promise of Peace and Tranquility¯Father Christmas During the Civil War" for years to come.

A Greenwich Workshop Personal Commission™ Print



With this, the sixth release of artist William S. Phillips’ series on the Doolittle Raiders, the artist and the surviving members of the Raid pay homage the Navy’s role in the legendary raid on Japan. Sending two United States aircraft carriers to the coast of Japan in 1942 was a risk of the highest order for a fleet, and a nation, still reeling from Japan’s string of victories in the Pacific. The USS Hornet, loaded with the 16 B-25s (all that could be shipped) which would strike the Japanese mainland in the “Halsey-Doolittle Raid,” steams eastward as part of Vice Admiral Halsey’s Task Force 16. The SBD Scout Bombers circling above would have been members of VS-6 flying from the USS Enterprise.

Wet Way, Washington´S Choice



In 1755, George Washington acted as an aide de camp to British General Edward Braddock as the British attempted to retake the Ohio Country from the French. Although the expedition itself ended in disaster for the British and colonial forces, the campaign provided an opportunity for the young Washington to distinguish himself in battle. Three years later, when Scottish general John Forbes began to plan his own campaign to take Fort Duquesne, he called upon Washington for assistance. Washington suggested they attack via a southerly route, but Forbes insisted on developing a new passage inland instead. Fortunately, Forbes had made the right decision and successfully eradicated the French. Washington´s Scout depicts an officer and two of his men investigating a possible route for what would become Forbes´ road.
