AMERICAN PANORAMA COMPANY
Posted by: Gene Meier (ID *****3436) Date: May 29, 2012 at 15:20:15

I am writing the first book from the American point of view about 19th century rotunda panoramas. These were the biggest paintings in the world, 50 x 400=20,000 square feet, housed in their own rotundas which were 16-sided polygons. Chicago in 1893 had 6 panorama companies and 6 panorama rotundas.Charles W.Purdy purchased shares in American Panorama Company,and Western Art Association. I have much info to share.
