Civil War Prints

Vintage Civil War Prints

When the Civil War broke out, President Abraham Lincoln asked his friend, artist Louis Kurz to visit the scene of several battlefields and camps to make pictorial representations.  He drew what he saw and also what others told him they had seen.  He brought a depth of feeling and perspective to war that no camera ever could.  He became one of the first war correspondents, but used a canvas instead of words.  From the sketches he made, Kurz later reproduced 36 as chromolithographs, together with noted engraver Andrew Allison.  These lithographs make up the visual heart and artistic soul of the book, Battles of the Civil War, where these Limited Edition prints were carefully disbound.
