Thure de Thulstrup American, born Sweden

Not on view

This group of prints was made by the Swedish-born artist Thure de Thulstrup, who moved to the United States after his military career. He became an illustrator for many of the popular illustrated weekly’s and newspapers such as Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper and Harper’s. He specialized in military scenes and scenes of every-day life in and around New York. The Museum has a large group of his sketches and drawings, which came into the collection through a gift in 1951. This group of prints exemplifies how these preliminary drawings were translated into printed illustrations for mass consumption.
