Thure de Thulstrup. "Battle of Shiloh."
Boston: American Lithographic Co., ca. 1890. 15 x 21 ½.. Chromolithograph. Framed. Very good condition.
Amid firing cannons and falling soldiers, General U.S. Grant directs the Union troops in one of the battles of Shiloh, or Pittsburgh Landing. Characteristic of this battle are the heavy woods and intense action. Though the scene is dominated by Union forces, the Confederate army is indicated by puffs of gunfire and illustrated in the distance at the print’s left hand edge. This print was first issued by the Boston Prang firm, and then reissued a few years later by the American Lithographic Co.. The image was made by chromolithography, where each color was printed by a separate stone. Well detailed and finely colored, this is an excellent print that would have been sold to veterans of the great conflict.
