Exquisite oversized imperial portrait of the tenacious Union general

Fabulous and crystal-clear original 7.5 x 13 imperial bust portrait of Sherman in suit and bow tie, taken by Falk Studios of New York (and so stamped at the bottom), signed in the lower portion of the image in black ink, “W. T. Sherman, General 1887.” Triple cloth matted and framed to an overall size of 16 x 22. Two creases—one to lower left corner and one extending into Sherman’s forehead—otherwise fine, clean condition. At the time Sherman signed this portrait, the former general had only been retired from army life for three years and was living in New York City—and was undoubtedly familiar with Falk and his work. An exceptional and well-preserved portrait boasting a fabulous signature. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
