Signed by Artist lower left of top panelThis is the Signed original Gouache painting by Ron Embleton.
A beautifully painted board by Embleton with two main panels showing the Redcoats, one of whom is having his hat shot off, and a very stylistically moody panel depicting a French advance. It is interesting to note that one of the French to the right hand side of the marching soldiers is also having his hat shot off, possibly showing an example of Embleton's humour.
The centre of the board also has three painted detailed characters. A Redcoat, a Ranger and a Native Indian, most probably from the Iroquois Tribe.
This board was painted for a finding Out magazine concerning the Revolutionary War.
