William Sartain was one of the 19th Century’s most prolific and popular printmakers. A master of the mezzotint, he is well known for the drama and lush appearance that are the hallmarks of his work. He is known for his command of greys, and his dense, velvetly black. 

Here, Sartain has rendered Robert E. Lee. This print is modeled after a photograph of Lee made by Mathew Brady, shortly after the surrender at Appomattox Courthouse. 

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

Sartain, William. Mezzotint of Lieut. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant. 19″ x 13″ (sight). Caption reads: “Engraved & Published by William Sartain 728 Sansom St. Phila./Robert E. Lee.”
