Painted by the artist in the same year as the disaster,
this work captures the dramatic moment that the
bridge collapsed. Winter was an eyewitness to the
disaster, in the days before photography artists
recollections of events was essential to telling stories
in the blossoming newspaper print industry. His work
went on to be widely reproduced and it continues to
be used in press stories about the suspension bridge
disaster to this day.
