American Revolution
Hand-Colored Lithograph Print of the "Battle at Bunker's Hill" by N. Currier after John Trumbull's Painting
c. 1849, Hand-Colored Lithograph Print of the "Battle at Bunker's Hill", "The Path to Liberty is Bloody." (Franklin), "Lith. & Pub. by N. Currier 2 Spruce St N.Y.", after the Historic Painting by John Trumbull, including a Key identifying the 17 figures within the painting in outline below, Very Fine.
A rare Print, Not shown in: "Currier & Ives Prints. An Illustrated Checklist. By Frederick Conningham" this being a variant of #378. Nathaniel Currier produced this colorful scene of one of the most important battles of the Revolutionary War circa 1849, definitely sometime before 1857, when the name of the firm was changed to Currier & Ives. The image itself measures about 8" x 12.25" but the entire print is larger and includes the title and other printed information on the bottom selvage, including a key to identifying the figures in the painting using selected outlines. Seventeen people identified in key to the right and left of the title. John Chester is shown gallantly fending off the bayonet of a British soldier who is about to stab American General Joseph Warren, plus one Black American Soldier holding a musket at far right. This print is mounted under early glass in a wide-bordered apparently its original wooden frame with a gilt inner border to an overall size of 13.75" x 17". We have not examined it out of the frame. Some scattered foxing can be seen mostly in the lower white border text areas, yet it remains an important historic and attractive colorful print for hanging on display.
N. Currier and Currier & Ives (1834-1907). The firm published over eight thousand different titles. All hand-made lithographs usually Hand-colored. Nathaniel Currier founded the firm purchasing John Pendleton's assets in New York City in 1834, James Merritt Ives became a partner in 1857, and only after that date the publication line changed to "Currier & Ives".
