Charles Kimmel & Thomas Forster were printers and engravers. They set up shop in New York City and had a prolific business from 1865 to 1871. They were contemporaries of Currier & Ives and this hand colored lithograph with it’s powerful graphic design and strong color could well have been one of their publications. There is a signature of the artist in the plate on the bottom right . This hand-colored lithograph is rare and very beautiful and is in excellent condition.
