The Civil War view “Sunday Prayers” by Sanford Robinson Gifford sold for an impressive $831,000 at Skinner’s American and European painting sale November 16.
The painting was identified in the catalog as “probably a study for ‘Sunday Morning in the Camp of the Seventh Regiment,'” and sites the encampment above the Potomac River. The price is the second highest for the artist. The picture descended in a private collection and went to the trade.
A complete review will appear in a future issue.
