Item Code: M25682

A cold cast bronze sculpture titled "Gen. Lewis Armistead" by Ron Tunison, signed and dated as Copyright 1994. The piece depicts General Lewis Armistead as he led his troop of Virginians, hat on sword, as they penetrated Union lines as part of Pickett's Charge at the Battle of Gettysburg on July 3, 1863. It is on a hardwood base with a gold title plate. It stands approximately 14 1/2 inches tall and the base measures 9 3/4 inches long and 8 inches wide. The sculpture is very slightly loose on its base, but there does not appear to be any danger of them separating.

The piece was later hand-painted by Mr. Tunison and signed and dated again in 1995, and numbered as number 6 of 6.

Ron Tunison (1947 – 2013) was born in Richmond Hill, N.Y., and was a graduate of the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. He was a scholarship student at the NYC National Academy where he continued his sculpting studies. He went on to become an internationally acclaimed sculptor of nine heroic bronze monuments: "General W. Crawford," near Little Round Top on the Gettysburg Battlefield, the “Friend to Friend Masonic Memorial" on Steinwehr Ave., the bas-relief "Delaware State Memorial" on Taneytown Road, and "The Gettysburg Civil War Women's Memorial" at Evergreen Cemetery. On the Antietam National Battlefield is Tunison's "Irish Brigade Monument." "The Bivouac" is at the entrance to the Civil War Soldier's Museum at Pamplin Historical Park near Petersburg, Va. "The Delaware Continentals" heroic size bronze of three advancing Revolutionary War soldiers stands atop a twenty-five foot granite pedestal in front of Legislative Hall at Dover, Delaware. At Ringgold Gap in Atlanta, Ga., is Ron's life-size General Patrick Cleburne. Dedication ceremonies for “General John Barry, U.S. Naval Commander”, took place May 10th, 2014 at U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD.  Ron was the entrepreneur behind his own company Historical Sculptures, where he sculpted smaller statues.  [ld]
