Ambush 1725 at Lovewell Pond

NOTES: Artist John Buxton’s new Fine Art Edition depicts the calm before the storm of an American Indian surprise attack on militiamen. Captain John Lovewell of New England, a ranger and renowned scalp hunter, died on May 8, 1725 as he led a third expedition against the Abenaki Indians in an area now known as Fryeburg, Maine. A number of colonial militiamen and Abenaki Native Americans, including a notorious war chief named Paugus, also died in the engagement which marked the end of hostilities between the Abenaki and the white colonists in this part of the colonies.

More than 100 years later, the event was immortalized in a poem The Battle of Lovell's Pond, by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, author of Paul Revere's Ride, and The Song of Hiawatha.

One of the verses reads:
The warriors that fought for their country, and bled,
Have sunk to their rest; the damp earth is their bed,
No stone tells the place where their ashes repose,
Nor points out the spot from the graves of their foes.

I'm a historical artist. I don't claim to be a historian, said Buxton who is known for his painstaking research into every detail. He hired a Maine historian to help him explore the banks of what is now Lake Lovewell in Maine. They canoed the lake and saw the actual sites of Captain Lovewell’s exploits. Buxton noted the steep slope of the bank, the vegetation and fully imagined the scene that eventually took shape on his canvas. The original painting was commissioned by a direct descendant of Captain John Lovewell. Now you, too, can own a piece of this remarkable Colonial New England history.

John Buxton bio

"John Buxton was born in the small southern town of Oxford, North Carolina. He excelled at art from childhood. After two years of general college in his home state, he earned his art degree from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, California. He was a successful illustrator for 31 years, working in Detroit, Cleveland and Pittsburgh. During this time, he illustrated two books for the National Geographic Society and developed a fascination with documentation and truth in art. In 1994 he left illustration and began painting subjects more personal to his interests. Buxton soon began exhibiting his painting, placing two works in the Birds in Art show at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum. Northlight Books later reproduced these two paintings in The Best of Wildlife Art 2 by Rachel Rubin World. He entered, and placed in the Top 100 in the Arts For The Parks competition. The Society of Animal Artists elected him to membership and invited him to show in their national exhibitions. He exhibited with the American Academy of Equine Artists before settling into his true niche: Historical Art. Buxton s historical images of the 18th century often depict scenes from the birth of our nation, allowing the viewer to witness momentous events or experiences from everyday life of the frontier. Many historical sites display Buxton s extensively researched works and several documentary films have been aired that featured his paintings. Buxton s paintings are available as a CD Teaching Aid for educators wishing to give students a more intimate view of America s historical heritage, effectively making history come alive. His original paintings and commissioned works are in great demand. Buxton exhibits his original art at Settlers West Galleries in Arizona, Gallery One of Ohio and Lord Nelson s Gallery in Gettysburg. Buxton has shown his artwork at the Gilcrease Museum and his largest painting; a life-size standing portrait of Abraham Lincoln hangs in a place of honor at the National Civil War Museum.
