Battle of Champion-Hills.


  • PUBLISHER: Published by Kurz & Allison, Chicago.

  • MEDIUM: Chromolithograph,

    DATE: 1887.

  • EDITION SIZE: Image 17 1/2 x 25" (444 x 634 mm) plus title and margins.

  • DESCRIPTION: Subtitled - "Rear Attack by Genl. John A. Logan - May 16th 1863". A Union victory. This battle was key in the isolation and eventual siege of the city of Vicksburg. Between 1884 and 1894 Kurz and Allison published thirty-six chromolithographs of Civil War battles. These prints were valued for their naive artistry. The compositions are stylized, showing both Union and Confederate armies in panoramic "fishbowl" settings. This, together with an unpainterly treatment of human figures, lends an effect similar to the graphics seen in the earlier lithography of Currier & Ives.


  • CONDITION: Good condition and color.
