Date:
1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 7
Original composition (partly finished) of No. 19. When the size of the intended copper-plates was determined, the artist resolved in his future pictures to adopt the size of those plates, as being more convenient to the engraver. This picture, which is the same size as the Bunker's Hill and Quebec, and much larger than the copper-plates, is placed in the collection, to explain to future artists the manner of proceeding with the work: they will see that the ground was white on which the work was first merely sketched,--then faintly stained with positive colors,--and finally, each head and figure carefully finished from nature. [P. 14; see entry 04040019 for other work noted in this commentary.]
