    MARYES HEIGHTS - AN ORIGINAL CIVIL WAR GOUACHE. Robert Merrill is a well known American book illustrator, and his name appears as an 1865 Civil war enlistee. Regardless of his lack of colorful war career, he is arguably a fine artist. Merrill's images appear in Warren Lee Goss' Jack Alden published in 1890. He is also listed in the Dictionary of American Artists, Sculptors, and Engravers. This beautiful image in gouache image measures approximately 8.75" x 12.25" on card 13.25" x 18". In period pencil on card, "Jack Alden. P. 222 At Marye's Heights. 'Get down there, men! Lie down!'" Fantastic original art from this elusive artist.

    Condition: Fine, bottom right corner broken, and chips at bottom edge.
