Historical Excerpt – “The Scene Painter is No Ghost” and Charles Graham, part 2

Here are a few examples of Charles Graham’s artwork. I introduced him in my post yesterday (“The Scene Painter is No Ghost”) as an inspiration for Thomas Moses during 1874. Graham was primarily an illustrator but also worked as a scenic artist in Chicago and New York from 1874-1877.
I have included some of his illustrations for the Columbian Exposition in 1893 as he was one of the official artists for the world’s fair.
