      Hermann Faber (German-American1832-1913) portrait of the meschianza grenadier Signed, " H. Faber," and inscribed, "Plate n.1," watercolor on paper, together with a five dollar Continental currency note, printed by Hall and Sellers, 1779. 9 1/2 in. x 6 in. PROVENANCE: Property from Cliveden, a National Trust Historic Site. This watercolor is thought to represent the painted wooden figure of a British Grenadier used as scenery in the famous Meschianza held in Philadelphia for General William Howe in May, 1777 and recorded in the journal of Sally Wister. The larger than life size figure is now part of the collection fo the Philadelphia History Museum. This watercolor may be a sketch of the Grenadier used as the frontispiece in the 1902 publication of Sally Wister's Journal. Hermann Faber was born in Germany and came to Philadelphia in 1854. During the Civil War he served the Surgeon General as a medical illustrator. He famously made two sketches of Abraham Lincoln on his deathbed.
