"Winfield Scott" Folk Art Style Pen and Ink Drawing

c. 1840, Original Hand-Drawn Pen and Ink Drawing of General Winfield Scott, Choice Extremely Fine.

This original Hand-Drawn Pen and Ink Drawing by an unknown period artist, depicts General Winfield Scott, AKA "Ol' Fuss 'n' Feathers," dressed in his full military uniform, posed upon a rearing horse. The horse is also wearing matching decorative "Eagle & Star" designs upon its saddle blanket and a canteen. There is some age-toning to the background which only enhances this vintage item. It is a nice, heroic image of the general who conceived of the battle plan that would defeat the Confederacy at the end of the Civil War. This magnificent, historic drawing measures 8.5" x 9" by sight, and is matted and framed to 13.5" x 13.5" overall. Folk Art or military collection, it is of Museum quality that is excellent for display.
