The New West Point – General View from the Landing

This unlocated painting is known through a photograph in The Century Magazine, July 1904 from the Dawson Dawson-Watson family archives.

Dawson-Watson was commissioned by the Boston architectural firm of Cram, Goodhue and Ferguson to paint this architectural rendering of the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York. Dawson-Watson also hand-carved a frame for the painting with the West Point coat of arms in the center of its base. At the time, the architectural firm had been awarded a commission for the redesign of West Point.
