Antique Hudson River Valley School Painting, The Kosciusko Monument at West Point
Attributed to Edmund C. Coates (1816-1871)


Antique Hudson River Valley School Painting, The Kosciusko Monument at West Point
Attributed to Edmund C. Coates (1816-1871), entire view

The painting, A View of West Point and the Kosciusko Monument, mounted within a gilt frame,
shows the gated Kosciusko Monument at the upper left, with the secondary focus being the
Hudson River dotted with sailboats and a steamer, and a tertiary focus…two women strolling in
the foreground as sheep graze to their right. Kosciuszko's Monument honors Polish General
Tadeusz Kosciuszko at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York.
Kosciuszko designed the defenses of the West Point garrison (1778–1780) during the height of
the Revolutionary War, when George Washington considered West Point to be the most
important military post in America. The pedestal and shaft of the monument was first proposed
in 1825 by John Latrobe and was dedicated in 1828.

The painting was exhibited at the U.S. Department of State, Art in Embassies Program.
(Minor retouch lined and remounted on newer stretcher. Frame: 32" x 24.25" view: 27.25" x 19.5")

Historic Nineteenth Century Painting of
Libby Prison, Richmond, Virginia
Signed R. Russell, 99


Historic Nineteenth Century Painting of Libby Prison, Richmond, Virginia
Signed R. Russell, 99, entire view

The painting shows a front & right-side view of the infamous Libby Prison used to house
Union officers captured by the Confederacy; a Confederate flag flies over the prison.
The 3-story brick prison, formally a warehouse located on Tobacco Row near the James
River became a hospital and prison in 1861; in 1862 it became an officer’s prison. There
were 8 rooms with low ceilings measuring 103' x 42'. Prisoners were held on the 2nd
and 3rd floors of the dank, crowded facility.

The painting, by a naïve hand, is signed in the lower left corner; the signature reads “R.
Russell 99”. The clothing worn by pedestrians appears to be of the Civil War period. In
1889 the building was dismantled and moved to Chicago where it was rebuilt to serve
as a Civil War museum however it soon failed and was again dismantled…its pieces
sold as souvenirs.

The frame has a few small losses to gesso; painting shows age and would benefit from
a cleaning. There are two small areas of fill; a horizontal tear along the right side of
building was repaired when the canvas was lined. The period frame measures 30" x
24", view area: 23.5" x 17.5".
