Panorama entrepreneur Eugene David/France & USA
Posted by: Gene Meier (ID *****3436) Date: October 09, 2011 at 18:55:39
  of 1746

I am writing the first book from the American point of view about 19th century rotunda panoramas. These were the biggest paintings in the world, 50 x 400=20,000 square feet, housed in their own rotundas which were 16-sided polygons. Chicago in 1893 had 6 panorama companies and 6 panorama rotundas.I have much info about Eugene David from the 1880s to share as he introduced the panorama concept in New York, Chicago and San Francisco.
