Wilbur Feltner's Collection of Mort Künstler Paintings

Considered one of the preeminent painters of the Civil War, Mort Kunstler is especially popular in the Winchester region. Wilbur Feltner has been an admirer of Kunstler's art for many years, and has what many deem as the most extensive collection of his art, located in the Feltner Museum in Winchester Virginia. In this interview Mr. Feltner discusses his first encounter with Künstler's art and how their relationship subsequently developed into commissions for two of Künstler's most popular paintings, Until We Meet Again and Wayside Farewell.
