The Making of a Masterpiece - "Mrs. Jackson Comes to Winchester"

After rereading "Stonewall" Jackson by Dr. James I. Robertson, Jr., the world's foremost authority on the subject, I decided to give it another try. - Mort Künstler




Mort can draw any number of sketches to achieve the composition he is looking for. For some paintings it could be only two, and for some more than ten.
