Accompanying the first significant exhibition devoted to American painter and illustrator Chappel (1828-1887), a long-neglected artist whose images of prominent figures and battles in early American history often served as models for book and periodical illustrations, this catalogue documents more than 50 paintings by the artist and a selection of engravings after his work. A brief biographical text augments two scholarly essays reappraising Chappel's highly successful career and discussing possible pictorial and documentary sources for his compositions.
