On this enduring book jacket is an incredibly rendered depiction of a war taking place between Denmark and Prussia, during the German Expansionism. Prussia had invaded Danish Ducal Territory known as Schleswig and Holstein, which eventually culminated in the loss of much of Southern Denmark. The realism with which this has been created is truly amazing. The sometimes horrific acts that are seen during any time of war have been perfectly captured; the artist has spared no expense to create details that are certainly evocative of a battlefield. The artist has also masterfully created a wonderful depth to the work by hazing out the background and leaving the figures in the foreground bold and very distinct. The mat that was chosen for this piece is a dusty blue gray that matches the blue tones in the foreground and the background. The extremely dark walnut wood frame perfectly brings forth the earthen tones in the piece, but in such a way that it doesn?t overshadow the work of art itself. This work of art measures 24? x 17?, which also includes the frame?s dimensions as well. This particular book jacket hails from a 100th Anniversary edition and is a rare find in antique bookstores. This is truly a must have for any history buff. This is a wonderful addition to any collection considering the price.
