This week’s Item of the Week comes to us from the Collections Room.
This image of Weyers Cave in Augusta County, Virginia is a lithograph by Edward Beyer from 1858. Beyer was a German artist who traveled through western Virginia painting many beautiful landscapes. He eventually had his paintings made into lithographs that were bound and sold as the Album of Virginia.
Many of Beyer’s lithographs can be found on display at the North House Museum.
