The celebrated and most collected sketch ever done by the famous artist Winslow Homer!

Authentic, original woodcut engraving that was published in the November 15, 1862 issue of Harper's Weekly. Caption: The Army Of The Potomac- A Sharpshooter On Picket Duty. From a Painting by W. Homer, Esq. 16 x 11. Harper's Weekly and date are printed in the margin. There is a small stain in the left margin area near the outer edge of the border which does not even come close to touching upon any of the content and can be easily matted out. Minor age toning in the border area and minor edge wear. EXTREMELY DESIRABLE!! Winslow Homer at his best!

This celebrated Winslow Homer illustration is the most sought after and most difficult to locate of all the Homer Civil War prints. He is probably best known for this image more than any other one that he ever sketched. A Union sharpshooter sits perched on a tree limb with his telescopic rifle in place as he takes aim on his next Confederate victim. The soldier is wearing a kepi with his Company letter "A" on top of his hat as he is locked in intense concentration as he draws a bead on his target. His canteen is hanging on a nearby branch. Homer's details are flawless as you can see the concentration in the soldier's face as well as the needles, pine cones and bark of the tree he sits atop. I have seen this same print selling in other shops for $750.
