Joshua L. Chamberlain -- A Portrait
A new series of original paintings by Ron Lesser
This portrait of a young Joshua Chamberlain was painted as a companion piece to the artist's major Civil War Masterpiece "Battle for Little Round Top -- Gettysburg". It was painted in early 2005 from one of the artist's favorite historical photos of Chamberlain, which was also used as a reference for the battle scene.

In the spirit of these 19th century historic documents Mr. Lesser, with a keen eye for detail and immense talent, has reinvented these masterworks.

Painting each with warm light and subtle color, as if bathed in the light from a nineteenth century kerosene lantern, Mr. Lesser brings these frozen “black and white” images to life with a level of detail rivaled only by the work itself. Created in traditional oils, each original painting is a masterpiece inviting the viewer to “meet” one of the key figures of the Civil War.

No other contemporary Civil War painter captures the essence of the great figures of our country's Civil War like Ron Lesser.
