Catalogue Note

The present work is a study for Winslow Homer’s 1864 painting The Brierwood Pipe, which is in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art and depicts two volunteer soldiers for the Union Army. The subject was inspired by a sentimental poem popular at the time, in which a Civil War soldier carves a wooden pipe and daydreams of the time when conflict will end so that he can return home.
