  • PUBLISHER: Kurz & Allison, Chicago.

  • MEDIUM: Chromolithograph,

    DATE: 1891

  • EDITION SIZE: 17 1/2 x 25" (445 x 635 mm) plus title and margins.

  • DESCRIPTION: Subtitled "Oct. 3 & 4, 1862. Union (Gen. Rosencrans) Loss: Gens. Hackleman, Krby Smith & 315 KD., 1812 WD. & 232 MISG. Conf. (Gen. Van Dorn) Loss: Col. Rogers & 1424 KD., 5000 WD., 2268 Pris." The In the foreground is the 2nd Texas infantry regiment attacking the 63rd Ohio Volunteer infantry. 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.
