The Angel of the Battlefield
Clara Barton with Walt Whitman at Chatham, December 1862
Add a beautiful building and view, and it seemed to me that this painting would almost paint itself. An extra bonus was that while caring for the wounded outside Chatham (there was not room enough inside), she tended to Confederates as well as Union soldiers. All the elements were there. The key was in the composition so that I could tell the story. – Mort Künstler
Mort has drawn his composition on the canvas; you can already tell what kind of time of day it will be.
