Edition:Artist Hand Signed and Numbered Limited Edition to 35 Frame: Fine Art Giclee on Canvas (Select Below) About the Artist: "Like a frozen tear drop, a Mort Künstler painting captures on canvas the pathos and drama of a single moment of war. Whether it’s the poignant goodbye between Confederate Gen. Thomas J. “Stonewall" Jackson and his wife, Anna, or the fire, smoke and brutality of the assault on Cemetery Ridge in Gettysburg, Künstler’s Civil War tableaux teem with vitality, portraying layers of emotion and the raw wounds of battle in richly detailed, historically authentic war scapes."

He's the premier historical artist in America - and now he focuses mainly on the American Civil War. When Mort Künstler began his current emphasis on Civil War art in the early 1980s, he had already accomplished more than a half-dozen artists could hope to accomplish in a collective lifetime. From portraits of prehistoric American life to the odyssey of the space shuttle, Mort Künstler had painted America's story - and was already renowned as "the premier historical artist in America." When he placed his focus on Civil War art, Mr. Künstler quickly established himself as the country's most-collected Civil War artist, and earned unprecedented acclaim within the genre of Civil War art.
"Mort Künstler is the foremost Civil War artist of our time -- if not of all time," says Dr. James I. Robertson Jr., the dean of Civil War historians and the author of the celebrated biography, Stonewall Jackson. "To study his paintings," says Robertson, "is to simply see history alive." Pulitzer Prize-winning historian James McPherson concurs. "Of all the artists working in the Civil War field," he observes, "none captures the human element, the aura of leadership, the sense of being there and sharing in the drama, quite like Mort Künstler. He has that enviable talent of being able to re-create history on canvas and to translate events into art."
