Civil War Paintings

by Mort Kunstler

From the publisher:
For nearly twenty years, Mort Künstler has interpreted the Civil War through his paintings. As part of his research, he has turned to leading historians and scholars for information that he has then translated on canvas to create an indelible image of the war, in many ways the defining ordeal in American history.

The four volumes that make up The Civil War Paintings of Mort Künstler contains more than 650 images. Some of these images are of original sketches, others are of the works in progress, others are completed paintings, yet others are details in the paintings that are of particular interest.
