Southern landscape painting, oil on canvas, depicting a view of Cumberland Gap with mountains and log structures. Signed "O.M. '97" lower left. The painting depicts the evacuation of the Cumberland Gap by the 7th Division of the Army of the Ohio. The Cumberland Gap was occupied by the Confederates until June of 1862. The Union Army then occupied the gap until September, 17th 1863. It is believed that the house in the foreground was the headquarters of Brig. Gen. Absalom Baird of the 27th brigade with the tents surrounding the home belonging to the 14th Kentucky infantry. It is likely that the painting is based off of a Civil War era print. Sight – 21 1/4" H x 26 7/8" W. Framed – 26 1/4" H x 32" W. Late 19th century. Provenance: Collection of Grace Tankersley, Knoxville, TN., purchased from Carole Wahler. Condition: Cleaned with later frame, blacklighting did not reveal any inpainting or repairs.
