A finely detailed watercolor and gouache painting of the Revolutionary War British fort at Paulus Hook, New Jersey (now Jersey City) circa 1776 by American artist Edward Lamson Henry (1841-1919). Henry was born in Charlestown, SC and brought to New York at a young age, studying under Walter Mason Oddie, enrolling in the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and eventually at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He served in the Civil War, and later became well known for his war sketches, not only of the Civil War, but other historic and realistic genre scenes as well. Watercolor and gouache on paper, monogrammed lower left ELH, with front plaque which reads “Paulus Hook, 1776, by E.L.Henry,” and titled on a Kennedy Galleries NY label on verso “Paulus Hook Jersey City, New Jersey, circa 1776,” matted and framed under glass in a molded giltwood frame with ebonized border (some losses). Dimensions: 13” H x 21 ¼” W, actual; 18 ¾” H x 26 ¾” W, framed. A great addition to your American Revolutionary War collection!
