Moonlight Ride

Moonlight Ride

June 8, 1775.  Williamsburg, Virginia.  Gunpowder had recently been removed from the Magazine and Williamsburg’s citizens were angry.  Under colonial threat, the fourth Earl of Dunmore, Governor John Murray flees the Governor’s Palace under the cover of darkness, never to return. 

The above painting depicts that scene. 

An unlimited edition of reproductive prints of this painting are available for $75 each.  They measure 20”x24” and each print is hand signed by the artist and is suitable for framing. 

The original painting (oil on canvas) measures 24”x30” and is in the artist’s private collection.
