A large scale impressive oil on stretched canvas by noted New York City illustrator Howard Chandler Christy titled "Surrender of the Blockhouse, Spanish-American War." A boldly rendered impressionist work that depicts one of the war's climactic battle scenes of 1898. Signed lower left and framed with a title plaque. Stretcher bar bears the notation "Oct. Cover." This is a defining example of the artist's historically impactful work that deftly shows Christy's expertise in making battle scenes come to life.
