Description Color lithograph of the epic Civil War battle between the first iron-clad warships. The Merrimac (the larger ship) represented the Confederacy, the Monitor the Union. On April 9th and 10th, 1862 they fought to a draw at Hampton Roads Virginia. That is just part of the story.The significance of the battle of the battle was that the Confederacy failed to break the Union blockade, and the advent of ironclads signaled the beginning of the end for wooden warships. Take a look at warships of the 1890's in my gallery NAVY. In just 30 years the look of the world's navies underwent a radical change and modernization.This print is from an original, thus the unavoidable signs of age. By Currier & Ives c.1862.
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.
