Edwin Forbes (1839 - 1895) was an American landscape painter and etcher, known for his vivid and detailed depictions of Civil War military subjects and battlefield scenes. Forbes was the staff artist for Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper specifically covering battles during the Civil War. Forbes accompanied the Army of the Potomac throughout the conflict. Making quick sketches on the battlefield he would later refine them with great detail. The sketches were sent back to New York where copper plate etchings were made from the detailed drawings. His drawings were published in Leslie's newspaper and in 1876, Forbes made etching of his own illustrations and published them in portfolio form on better quality paper as "Life Studies of the Great Army: A Historical Art Work in Copper Plate Etching Containing Forty Plates." We offer three plates, margins trimmed but matted to actual issue size of 19.5" X 24.5". These retail from $450 - $600 each in fine print shops.

Henry (Harry) Alexander Ogden, H. A. Ogden (1856 - 1936) was an American illustrator particularly of historical and military subjects. He was born in Philadelphia on July 17, 1856 but moved to Brooklyn, New York when he was quite young and it was at the Brooklyn Institute and the Brooklyn Academy of Design that he received his first training in art. At the age of 17, he began work with Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper. This allowed him to travel extensively around the United States and Europe. One visit to the American West in 1877 resulted in over 200 illustrations. In 1881, he resigned from Leslie's to set up as a free- lance artist, submitting numerous illustrations to various newspapers and magazines. A number of these were illustrations of historical scenes, and Ogden's interest in early America and the Revolutionary War led him to his most ambitious project, to record the uniforms of the United States. We offer 3 different dated 1912 prints by Ogden, overall 9" X 12" colored lithographs.
