Rare Vintage Gettysburg Cyclorama Painting Remnant

$ 2,500
  • Description
    Rare painting remnant from Gettysburg Cyclorama from a huge painting depicting the Gettysburg Battle. (The painting shows the end opening of a civil war soldiers tent with his canteen hanging and his rifle, see picture)

    If you are a Civil War or History buff this is a rare opportunity to buy a very rare piece of pure Americana. Very unusual piece.

    Note: The First photo is of the painting for sale. The second photo is of the cyclorama painting at the last Gettysburg museum before they tore it down and cut the cyclorama painting up. The third photo is of the whole original painting of the tent end that the National Park Service used on the home page of its website for the new Gettysburg Museum for several years. So you could say this painting is famous as the national Park Service used it on their website. They have taken the picture off about a year ago.

    Frame 24"x30" Painting showing 20"x26"


    This piece could have come from repairs made to the original cyclorama (see attached historical information) at the original Gettysburg museum. Or it could have come from “one” of the four copies of the cyclorama of which was sold to the Indians for tent material (see attached historical information).
    This painting was featured on the Gettysburg National Park Service home page website until recently when it was changed to the park service emblem.
    Because it was used on the National Park Service website home page, it’s more likely it was a cut section that was repaired on the original Gettysburg Cyclorama.
    I purchased this piece from a long-time civil war antique dealer and collector about five years ago.
    Very rare once in a lifetime chance to own a piece of famous and historic Americana like this.
    It is in the original frame
