Description Unabashedly patriotic art titled 'Our Heaven Born Banner' by artist Frederick Edwin Church. Printed by Saxony, Major & Knapp Lithographers c.1861.It shows a lonely Zouave viewing a sky filled with the glory of the American flag. Some Union militia units wore the uniform of French North African Zouave troops, probably seeing them as romantic and exotic.
Ken Sehres, Philadelphia, PA Member Since April 2011 Artist Statement Hi from historic Philadelphia, which is, at once, beautiful, timeless, busy, cultural, and sometimes gritty--in short it is a real city.. I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, and after quite a few years have returned to the city of my heart. I was born in Brooklyn, grew up on Long Island, and have lived in Manhattan and Tampa.
I am offering historically researched images, some original art (forthcoming), and original photographs (mine). The images are from my own collections, from the internet, and paintings by my mother (soon to come). Many will be of historic or nostalgic interest. Some will have been digitally enhanced. Credit to the artist will be given wherever possible.
At Imagekind I have the opportunity to offer a large assortment of prints, many fine papers, creative matting, and framing to compliment the prints.
Please take a look at my galleries, and check out my store at homegear.imagekind.com/store. I will be adding images on a regular basis.
