Ropes Paintings Poster
Our recently acquired paintings by artist George Ropes, Jr. are captured on this unique poster. The four paintings recreate the epic battle between USS Constitution and HMS Guerriere, the very battle in which cannonballs are reported to have bounced off the hull of the American ship to cries of "Huzzah, her sides are made of iron!" The battle was a stunning defeat for Britain and rallied Americans. The poster measures 11" high x 36" long.
