Limited Edition Cold Cast Bronze Sculpture Number by Ron F. Tunison. Commissioned by the American Print Galley in Gettysburg PA and released in 1988. The piece depicts Generals George Pickett and James Longstreet on July 3, 1863 -- the last day of the Battle of Gettysburg -- shortly before Longstreet ordered Pickett to make his infamous charge.

Measures 10 ½” in height on a 9”x11” wooden base. Signed by the artist, © ADG[?] 88 SAHA (The Society of American Historical Artists, formed by Tunison with 5 other artists).  Number 300 of 500. Excellent condition; there are a few minor surface scrapes to the base, which are most noticeable on the back.

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]
