Description:

Hand-colored print. Image area 20.5x31.2 cm (8x12¼") on a sheet 30.5x40.7 cm (12x16"), professionally matted. First Edition.

Taylor’s victory at Buena Vista, the last battle in northern Mexico, was a sensation with the American public and was responsible for a spate of laudatory lithographs, such as this one. This scene is unusual in that it is thematically divided into two elements. In the lower part of the image, the battle rages, with U.S. forces marching forward. In the upper part are shown Santa-Anna and his officers, apparently displeased with developments.
