During the Civil War, illustrated newspapers like Harper’s Weekly provided the American public with current and accurate pictures of the war. These newspapers continued to document the events, scenes, and personages of the following years, with great popularity. These pictures remain among of the best sources for lively, informative images of nineteenth-century America. Photography was popular but difficult to publish, so these illustrations provided much of the country with its visual information about the events, personalities and places of the time. Major artists were employed to do drawings on the spot, which were then turned into lively and detailed prints in an amazingly short period of time.
While originally issued in large numbers, few have survived the ages in good condition. Perhaps the most popular topic for the prints are sporting events, at an era when many of these sports were just beginning. These are interesting, historical and very collectible prints. This particular clipping commemorates All-Fools’ Day. The picture that illustrates the article is a reproduction of an etching by S. G. McCutcheon. It shows a couple of African american men hunting for rabbits; one of them holds three rabbits while the second man, sitting on the ground uncovers his rabbit trap to find a jack-o’-lantern. The image caption reads “Gret King! Yo’ Don’t Call Dat A Rabbit? - Drawn by S.G McCutcheon” The picture is signed “McCutcheon” on the bottom right as part of the print.
Stephen G. McCutcheon 'Stephen McCutcheon': A nineteenth century American artist. His name appears in no standard reference source for 19th century American art. Various periodicals commissioned Stephen McCutcheon to supply them with illustrations for their papers, predominantly Harper's Weekly.
