Old lithograph or painting info...War of 1812?


Recommended Posts

I posted this on the world militaria forum thinking it may be foreign. I think its actually a US Army staff officer after doing some more research. Can anyone confirm this? Does anyone recognize the individual? I went back to the flea market and confirmed it is NOT a painting. I think its a lithograph or something else. The surface texture is the same across the entire picture. Any information that I could get would be appreciated. Thank you.

It might be a chromolithograph.... Not sure who he is though.

 

Chromolithographs are usually of famous people.... Sherman, grant, Washington, etc....

Always interested in the 166th Infantry, 42nd Division, A.E.F.

Quality WW1 studio portraits and real photo postcards of Distinguished Service Cross recipients; showing steel helmets; or other interesting content.

Do you mean to say that the surface is uniformly flat across the entire surface?

 

Photo chromolithograph has been mentioned, and it could possibly be a stone lithograph, or even a watercolor...

 

I'd love a chance to have seen that piece with a magnifying glass/jeweler's loupe!

It is all one level surface as opposed to an actual painting which you cant feel the highs and lows of the paint. The surface does have like a pebbling type look/feeling to it. Ill try to post some better pictures in a day or two. If you look closely by the right eye there is a repair or some sort of haphazard touch up.
