On 12/5/2022, Historian Joshua Loper negotiated the purchase of the oil study and notes from Bryant White for Prelude to Brandywine for the GWWTofDE Museum and educational use. They will join the concept sketch that started the painting. Joshua purchased the concept art at the Hale-Byrnes House the night the painting was unveiled. The Whites are really great people. A huge special thanks has to go to Bryant for allowing the purchase of these for posterity.
