Description of the Artwork/Battle.
The Battle of Fredericksburg I (also known as Marye’s Heights) was fought December 11–15, 1862, in and around Fredericksburg, Virginia. The Union army's, commanded by Maj. Gen. Ambrose Burnside, futile frontal attacks on December 13 against entrenched Confederate defenders on the heights behind the city is remembered as one of the most one-sided battles of the American Civil War, with Union casualties more than twice as heavy as those suffered by the Confederates. On December 15, Burnside withdrew his army, ending another failed Union campaign in the Eastern Theater. Result: Confederate victory.
Artist and/or Printmaker.
Founded in 1885, Kurz & Allison is well known for its production of commemorative prints of American historical scenes using the chromolithograph printing process. Drawn in a broad, graphic style that developed from Kurz’s background as a muralist, these prints have a striking appearance that makes them not only interesting historical images but also excellent decorative prints. The Kurz and Allison works of art are highly stylized with bright, dramatic colors.
