Pencil and watercolor sketch on paper. 7" x 4.5", mounted on paper to an overall size of 10.25" x 8.75". Unsigned. "Pottsville, Pa / Sept. 1863" lower left corner. Margin note reads "Sketched by / Augustus Koellner (of Phil., Pa.).

August Kollner (1813-1906) is a listed American artist who worked in a variety of mediums including oil, pencil and watercolor. This watercolor sketch features a horse with its back leg slightly raised. One wonders if the leg is wounded from battle or if Kollner has just captured the horse at rest. The artist's subtle use of color gives the sketch a sepia appearance. There is a small horizontal blemish just above the horse's head, and two small tears at right side of mount, otherwise the sketch is in near fine condition.
