William Sartain was one of the 19th Century’s most prolific and popular printmakers. Sartain, a master of the mezzotint, is well known for the drama, and lush appearance that are the hallmark of his work. The density of the black ink is unmatched!

Here, Sartain has rendered Lieutenant General Ulysses S. Grant.  Grant’s penetrating stare is further enhanced by the tonality of the greys. The print a 3-dimensional feel. The print is modeled from a carte-de-visite produced at Gurney & Son, NY in the 1860s.

Excellent condition, with only minor foxing and soiling to the edges; easily hidden by a mat when framing.
