Mort Künstler (born August 28, 1931) is an American artist known for his illustrative paintings of the American Civil War. His works are primarily sold as mass-produced printed reproductions. He is also known for earlier commercial illustration before turning to Civil War themes in the early 1980s, a body of work that dealt with America’s national story: from portraits of prehistoric American life to the odyssey of the space shuttle. His work has also been published in illustrated books and magazines and used by advertising agencies.

  1. Awesome stuff! I’ve loved Künstler’s work since I was young. Thanks for posting, I’m going to forward it to an artist friend I know will enjoy it, too.

    • You know that I have seen his art before but I never knew his name until I found a little treasure trove of his stuff and it’s amazing artwork.

      • I got to meet him briefly a couple of years ago at a NYC gallery showing of his magazine illustrations. He was a nice guy to chat with, too. And it’s a small world sometimes– in my own magazine career as a writer, I ended up working for the publisher son of the publisher Künstler worked for when he was doing these “men’s adventure” illustrations in the 60s.
