Painted in Paris during the World War I by hundreds of artists, this circular panorama, at 402 feet long and 45 high, may have been the world’s largest painting. It included full-length portraits of approximately 6,000 French and allied figures. At the center was a “Temple to Glory,” French figures crowded on a staircase of heroes, and French political and military leaders near a cannon. Purchased by a U.S. businessman in 1927, the painting was exhibited in Washington, D.C., in conjunction with the Bicentennial of George Washington’s birth. In the 1950s, the artwork was effectively mutilated and destroyed as it was adapted for a U.S. display. The publication was created for the Bicentennial. It has a poor appearance, but the fold-out artwork displays as vg to vg-ex with some folds taped. Winning Bid $10.
