Of all the conflicts in American History, the Civil War has remained one of the most fascinating wars in the hearts of the American people. Since 1865, more than 50,000 works have been published on the subject. One of the most notable is "Images Of The Civil War", an illustrated history by the Pulitzer Prize recipient historian James M. McPherson and artist Mort Kunstler. After having painted historical scenes for more than forty years, in 1988 Kunstler began concentrating exclusively on The War Between The States. His objective was to capture on canvas all of the drama and emotion of events that had never before been painted. To create his paintings he undertook careful and painstaking research into the settings and events he would paint. It meant he needed to consult with expert historians and walk the actual battlefields before drawing them, always looking for landmarks to incorporate into the artwork. With each new painting, Künstler says he takes on the role of a historian: "I feel like I'm opening a window on a little part of history. What I try to do is create an image that will make you feel like you were there. I try to make it as accurate and as dramatic as possible." This documentary exposition of his work illustrates why James M. McPherson said of him "Of all the artists working in the Civil War field, none captures the human element, the aura of leadership, the sense of being there and sharing in the drama, quite like Mort Künstler."
