The Gettysburg Address of 1863: Framed Canvas Replica Painting: Medium
By artist Jean-Leon Gerome Ferris (1863-1930) in a Private Collection
Immortalizing the most famous American Civil War speech ever given by President Abraham Lincoln, this historical portrait of an audience enrapt at the oration of the statesman standing before the stars and stripes is splendid in its accuracy and detail. The painter, named for his own portrait-painting father's devotion to French artist Jean-Leon Gerome Ferris, is best known for "The Pageant of a Nation," the largest series of American historical paintings by a single artist. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our replica European style, bright gold-toned ribbed frame is cast in quality designer resin with an acanthus leaf and floret border that draws the eye toward the beautiful image.
