New Scene on View!

Scene 15: Chamberlain’s Gigantic Mounds and Walls; Natchez above the Hill

The Saint Louis Art Museum’s conservators have rolled The Panorama of the Monumental Grandeur of the Mississippi Valley back to Scene 15: Chamberlain’s Gigantic Mounds and Walls; Natchez above the Hill. This scene is modeled on one of Dickeson’s archaeological sketches, though the precise location of the mound site is unknown. Dickeson likely chose this calm, soothing scene to balance the violence and drama of the previous scene, which depicts the Battle of Fort Rosalie.
