Original Civil War Artists' Drawings

Julian Scott (1846-1901) 3rd Vermont Infantry. Medal of Honor winner and listed American artist.  The following study sketches are from Scott's sketch books.  Provenance: Kramer Gallery, Minneapolis, MN, to Cowan’s Auction Company, Cincinnati, OH, to Earl Robinson.  
OrionPortrait.jpg (117766 bytes) Pencil Portrait.  This haunting and beautifully drawn portrait is marked Orion Caperon along with the dates 1812, 13, & 14.  The subject is an older man wearing a uniform overcoat with distinctive Confederate infantry "I" buttons.  I have found listings for Orion Capron on-line, but none with Southern attributes.  The identity of this man that Scott obviously found worthy is at this moment unknown.  It is dated 1864 and signed. $ 900
JS28 Cavalry Battle.jpg (135381 bytes) JS28.  Cavalry battle figural study.  This came out of Scott's sketch book and was likely finished as part of an oil painting.  Unsigned on artist's paper. $ 350
JS06Take5.jpg (42145 bytes) JS06.  Sketch of musicians taking a break along a roadside.  Scott was a fifer, but when the newspapers mistakenly called him a drummer boy when he won the Medal of Honor, he did nothing the rest of his life to correct the misperception.  Unsigned pencil sketch on 1866 watermarked artist’s paper, 5" X 7". $ 250
