[PENCIL AND WATERCOLOR SKETCH OF UNION MEN RESTING AND DRINKING FROM A RIVER, EXECUTED FOR HARPER'S WEEKLY]
[N.p., 1865. Pencil and watercolor sketch, 7 3/4 x 9 inches. Loose in a paper mat. Previously folded, a couple of minor creased flattened. Very good. An attractive pencil and watercolor sketch of Union troops and their horses drinking from an unnamed river, in the style of A.R. Waud, perhaps by him and unsigned, drawn for publication in Harper's Weekly. In the left foreground, two men stare tiredly into the distance while their horses refresh themselves; on the right a group of three seated men guzzle from their canteens. The perspective of the image looks upstream towards a mountain and several wooden structures. Waud was one of the foremost illustrators for Harper's Weekly during and after the Civil War. He is most well- known for his depictions of Gettysburg that appeared as engravings in the periodical, and his rendering of "The First Vote" by former slaves during Reconstruction.
