E.B.D. Julio "The Last Meeting" Civil War Print

Lot 0313
Print of the Fred Halpin engraving based on the famous E.B.D. Julio painting originally titled "The Heroes of Chancellorsville" (1869) framed and matted under glass. Frame measures 41" in height by 35" in width with the sight image measuring 27" in height by 21-1/2" in width. All measurements are approximate. The painting and engraving depicts General R. E. Lee and Lt. General “Stonewall” Jackson meeting prior to Jackson’s stunning victory and tragic death at Chancellorsville in May 1863. The work portrays Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson on the evening of May 1, 1863, during the Battle of Chancellorsville. Julio’s painting has become an icon of the Lost Cause view of the Civil War. According to the historian Gary W. Gallagher, it reflects the Lost Cause’s preoccupation with military leaders and with Lee and Jackson in particular.
