Overview

Mort Kunstler's Civil War: The South by Mort Kunstler

Mort Künstler has painted so many Confederate subjects that even though he was born in Brooklyn, New York, he is often called a Southern artist. "This," he says, "I accept with pride."

This volume takes the viewer on a gallery tour of some of Künstler's favorite Confederate subjects. Winchester, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, and Gettysburg are all brought to life through his vivid use of color, light and shadow, and movement. In the accompanying text, the artist describes each painting, from concept to finished work.

Of the twenty-three paintings collected here, eight have never been published in any book. "All of the paintings," explains Künstler, "are done with a reverence for detail, authenticity, and most of all, the people of this most American of all wars."

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Probably no artist has recorded so many events in the history of America, and certainly none has done so with the extraordinary authenticity and drama of Mort Künstler."
