About this item

Newly conserved, Louis Langs (1814-1893) massive canvas, Return of the 69th (Irish) Regiment, N.Y.S.M., from the Seat of the War, N.Y. (1862), is on public view after an absence of more than sixty years. It documents the return of New Yorks Sixty-ninth Irish Regiment from Civil War battle on July 27th, 1861. Shown against the dramatic backdrop of New York Bay, the scene captures the emotional and physical tumult that electrified the welcoming crowds. Indeed Langs mission to provide a complete impression of an actual urban event on such a scale is unmatched in nineteenth-century American art.Printed on archival paper 11 x 14 inches
