Painting of Mountain
A Portland, OR man inherited a watercolor he believes was painted by a soldier in Rock Island, Illinois during the Civil War.
The artist is John F. Gisch. Along the bottom of the painting we read “Battle of Lookout Mountain, ” and “Rock Island Prison, ILL.”
Bill says the painting has been passed down in his family from generation to generation. He wants to know more about the artist, John Gisch, and about the painting itself.
