Product Description

This artwork by renowned historical artist Mort Künstler depicts General Robert E. Lee and "Stonewall" Jackson at the Confederate White HouseMort Künstler writes, “I learned that both Lee and Stonewall Jackson visited Richmond to confer with President Davis on July 13, 1862. What an opportunity to paint the White House for the first time and include the High Command - President and Commander-in-Chief Jefferson Davis, General Robert E. Lee, Commanding general of the Army of Northern Virginia, and his Chief Lieutenant, General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson! After studying the White House from every conceivable angle, I chose to distance myself enough from the building to include its three floors and distinctive roof. This would help identify the building to the viewer. I finally decided that by moving to the right of the building towards the corner of East Clay and 12th Street, I could show the roof line and also show the White House as most people see it today while driving or walking down 12th Street." For more, continue reading on the Mort Künstler website.
