Johann Georg Nordheim was a prolific German engraver whose engraving of the Battle of Bunker Hill was reproduced by American publishers such as the North American Bibliographic Institution. This engraving was sent to Institution subscribers, and had three format options with varying prices. Images of events in American history were
popular subjects for prints, which could be made quickly and circulated widely. Academic institutions used prints to encourage appreciation for American art, using the medium to gain exposure to those who were unable to view the paintings in person.
Date: Circa 1850
