Absolutely fabulous oil on canvas hand painted memorial escutcheon for Albert W. Bradbury of the 1st. Maine Light Artillery. The escutcheon is housed in an ornate Victorian frame measuring 37 inches x 32 inches. This one could quite possibly be the work of John Reynolds. Reynolds was a war wounded veteran who filed a patent for painting memorials in this form in 1864. Albert W. Bradbury enlisted on 12/18/61 as a 2nd Lieutenant in the 1st. Maine Light and rose to the rank of Major before being brevetted the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Albert Bradbury had a successful career serving in the Department of the Gulf and later in Virginia as Chief of Artillery of the 19th Corps and he was later appointed by General Sheridan as Chief of Artillery for the Army of the Shenandoah. The canvas has a couple of scrape marks particularly at the base of the eagle and also a couple of damaged spots on the bottom rim of the frame as noted in the photos.
