Description

This black and white print depicts a battle scene. In the foreground, there is a a stream with soldiers standing in assorted fighting poses. At the image's left, a solider stands aiming a firearm, while another leans back in midair. Other soldiers appear in different positions aiming firearms. In the background, soldiers appear to be headed toward the battle. This piece appears to be a lithographic reproduction of Gaul's original oil painting, The Skirmish Line.
