Watercolor: U.S. Grant at Cold Harbor - 14" x 14"


This watercolor is from a photo of Ulysses S. Grant outside his headquarters tent at Cold Harbor, Virginia, by a Union photographer Egbert Guy Fowx. A week before Grant had lost a lot of men in battle, but was determined to go on. I cropped a much larger picture to include Grant from the waist up because I liked the composition. And I enjoyed trying a looser style of portraiture. 180616. Watercolor, 14" x 14". In a private collection: S. Dunlap.
