Before coming to the United States in 1850, the German-born Kaufmann studied painting in Düsseldorf and Munich and fought in the 1848 popular uprisings in favor of national unity for Germany. As a Union soldier in the American Civil War, he may have seen retreating Confederate troops take their adult male slaves with them, leaving behind the women and children. Here, his portrayal of a group of fleeing figures suggests the lack of a clear route to liberty. They emerge from darkness into light but must traverse a rockstrewn path before arriving on the smooth road leading to the Stars and Stripes, which, however, remains frighteningly close to the ongoing battle.

This over 150 year-old artpiece was created by Theodor Kaufmann in the year 1867. The painting measures the size: 36 x 56 in (91,4 x 142,2 cm). Oil on canvas was applied by the painter as the medium of the artwork. The piece of art is included in the digital art collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which is one of the world's largest and finest art museums, which includes more than two million works of art spanning five thousand years of world culture, from prehistory to the present and from every part of the globe..

Available product materials

For every product we offer different materials and sizes. Pick your favorite size and material among the following options:

  • Poster print (canvas material): The Artprinta poster print is a UV printed flat cotton canvas with a granular texture on the surface. Please keep in mind, that depending on the size of the poster print we add a white margin of around 2-6cm around the painting, which facilitates the framing with a custom frame.
  • The canvas print: The UV printed canvas material applied on a wood frame. How do I hang a canvas print on the wall? The great advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight. That means, it is quite simple to hang the Canvas print without the use of any wall-mounts. Therefore, a canvas print is suitable for any type of wall.
  • Aluminium dibond print (metal): This is a metal print made on alu dibond with an outstanding depth. A direct Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is the ideal introduction to art replicas on alu. For our Direct Aluminium Dibond print, we print your chosen work of art onto the surface of the white-primed aluminum material. The colors are vivid and luminous, details of the print appear crisp and clear, and you can literally perceive the matte appearance of the art print surface.
  • Acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): The print on acrylic glass, which is often named as a print on plexiglass, changes the original work of art into amazing décor. Your work of art is made thanks to the help of modern UV print machines. It makes vibrant and sharp color hues. The major benefit of an acrylic glass fine art print is that contrasts and smaller image details become more visible thanks to the subtle tonal gradation of the print. Our plexiglass with real glass coating protects your selected art print against light and heat for between four and six decades.
