The paint­ing-series of larger-than-life portraits consist of five Americans by David Nicholson from 2016-2018 show a Union Gen­eral, Confederate General Beauregard, Lakota Chief Medicine Crow, an African American slave, and a Spanish Conquistador.

“I chose each character as a condensed portrait of the populations fighting for dominance on the American con­tinent. America’s inability to reconcile the people who have come to live under its constitution still haunts the country to this day.” - David Nicholson
