The Death of General Warren at the Battle of Bunker's Hill, June 17, 1775
After John Trumbull, engraved by Johann Georg Nordheim (1819-1853), Printed by the North American Bibliographic Institution, Philadelphia
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.
