Tom Lea Collection Featured on CBS Sunday Morning

CBS Sunday Morning recently featured several pieces from El Paso artist Tom Lea's collection, including That Two Thousand Yard Stare ─ part of its report on the Army's "hidden" art collection.

In 2008, Texas A&M University Press published The Two Thousand Yard Stare: Tom Lea's World War II, edited and with introductions by Robert Mac Greeley. Here, Greeley has collected paintings and Lea's previously unpublished accounts of his experiences documenting the war as a commissioned artist for Life Magazine.
