For I Was Thirsty - Studio Canvas Giclée (large)
"I Was Thirsty" depicts the true story of Confederate Sergeant Richard Kirkland during the Civil War battle of Fredricksburg. After a fierce battle on Dec 13, 1862, the scene shifted from heavy fighting to intense suffering. Sergeant Kirkland decided to do something about it.
After being ordered not to enter no man's land by his commanding officer, General Joseph Kershaw, he convinced the general to change his mind, and allow him to help the fallen Union enemy soldiers crying for help.
Kirkland gathered all the canteens he could carry and filled them at the near by water well. Then, at extreme risk to himself, he ventured out to help the Federal soldiers. He carried water and warm clothing to the suffering Federal soldiers.
Sergeant Kirkland's heroic act is a perfect example of the spirit of service noted by Jesus in Matthew 25. "I Was Thirsty" captures the pathos and emotion of this unselfish act of service, and serves as the second visual illustration in Artist Nathan Greene's Matthew 25 collection
A Studio Canvas Giclée is the closest possible reproduction to Nathan's original artwork. It is displayed exactly like an original oil painting, in a frame without glass. You will have the richness and depth of color on the texture of canvas, with all the exquisite detail of the original. Nathan hand paints each giclée with his signature. This limited edition collector's piece will be a source of pleasure and inspiration for you and all who view it for many years to come.
