Violet Oakley (1874-1960), General Meade and Pennsylvania Troops in Camp before Gettysburg, a 17 5/8" x 24½" mixed-media on canvasboard study for a mural in the Senate Chamber of the Pennsylvania State Capitol in Harrisburg, sold for $22,500 (est. $10,000/15,000) in the salesroom to William Valerio, director of the Woodmere Art Museum in Philadelphia, which has a large Violet Oakley collection and is planning a show of her artworks.
"Woodmere wanted both [Oakley works in the sale]," Valerio explained, "but I chose the Meade because the Meade family lived in Chestnut Hill, near the museum, and the buyers of the Washington Marching through Philadelphia said they would lend it to the show."
