Biography   Joseph Beale


Born in Philadelphia, Joseph Beale was the great-grandnephew of Betsy Ross. He devoted his career to illustrating momentous events in American history.

During the Civil War, he volunteered for service in the Gettysburg campaign in order to make sketches for "Leslie's Weekly" magazine. After the war, he was an illustrator for "Harper's Magazine." He never became very famous. He was a 20th century painter whose art belonged to the 19th century. It was whimsical, imaginative and optimistic in illustrative style and minute detail.
