Harlan Bonar’s Crater

Battle of the Crater by Harlan Bonar

I kind of like the colors that Harlan Bonar employs for his interpretation of the battle of the Crater, though I don’t see any USCTs.   Check out his portfolio for other Civil War scenes.  On the Crater front, just a quick reminder that I will be speaking tomorrow night at Genessee Community College in Batavia, New York.

    After looking through his portfolio he certainly does have a different way of viewing the scenes – I can see a lesson forming comparing his work to more traditional paintings out there…I think my students will like to see the comparisons.

      Excellent idea.

    His style brings to mind what you’d get if Van Gogh and Grandma Moses had a child.
    His colors are very vibrant
    I like his abstract non historical works the best.
