Stephen Henry Gimber (1810-1862). “Col. Washington at the Battle of Cowpens, [SC].” [William Washington]. From Graham’s Magazine.
Philadelphia, ca. 1845. 5 x 7 5/8 (image). Engraving by Gimber. Minuscule stain with loss of printed surface in sky. Else, very good condition.
Many of the popular magazines of the mid-nineteenth century were copiously illustrated with steel engraved views and genre scenes. These very popular engravings were produced by some of the most well known American artists of the day, and they include some unusual and fascinating images illustrating the mores and scenery of antebellum America. This print was issued in Graham’s Magazine, one of the best known illustrated magazines of the day. A lovely example of the fine prints issued in American illustrated magazines.
