JOHN WARD DUNSMORE AND THE AMERICAN WATERCOLOR SOCIETY

Regarding the American Watercolor Society, Len Augsburger writes:
American Watercolor Society Award Medal obverse John Ward Dunsmore served for a time as the President of the Society and also presented in their annual exhibitions. Dunsmore is of course known to numismatists as the painter of "Washington Inspecting the First Money Coined by the United States." The Society is still active and has a library in Manhattan - it's been on my to-do list and I will certainly keep a look out for the medals. I do not believe that the Society ever issued a medal to Dunsmore, as such a medal is unmentioned in his biographical papers, while other medals are.
