The Making of a Masterpiece - "Mrs. Jackson Comes to Winchester"

To paint “Stonewall” Jackson and his wife Mary Anna in Winchester at night and in the snow is a major problem for me. I did “Until We Meet Again” more than twenty years ago and it still remains one of the most popular paintings I’ve ever done. It has exactly those same elements in it and it is of course, a tough act to follow. – Mort Künstler

Mort draws several sketches to decide on the final composition
