CIVIL WAR SKETCHBOOK: Drawings From The Battlefront

HARRY KATZ & VINCENT VIRGA    Book Number: 80811    Product format: Hardback

Many of the images shown in this stunning, large book have never been published or researched before. American Civil War Special Artists including Winslow Homer and Thomas Nast reported for Harper's Weekly and brought a visceral immediacy presenting nuanced images of soldiers in camps and battles. The illustrations span many theatres - Antietam, Vicksburg and Gettysburg and little-known views of Shiloh and the famous stampede at Bull Run. Most of the war artists did not carry weapons but instead sported a large portfolio suspended from their shoulders that held paper, pencils, charcoal, ink, crayons, brushes, pens and maybe some water colours. Many artists could only endure the privations for a short time, and only two, Theodore Davis and Alf Waud, had the courage and constitution to follow the soldiers right through the war. The sketches shown, coupled with an exciting and informative text, provide a fascinating insight to the war and the people who fought or depicted it. Elegant landscape format, 12"x10", 250pp. Illus throughout.
