A Museum Quality Print of General Ulysses S. Grant by Ole Peter Hansen Balling. The artist finished this oil on canvas in the year 1864. The size of the original artwork is 47 by 37 inches and now hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC. This portrait of the future President Grant, by Norwegian Born Ole Peter Hansen Balling, shows the Union's most celebrated General at Vicksburg, the site of his great triumph of 1863. But in truth, Balling had his first sittings with General Grant more than a year after this battle in Washington DC. From around 1900 until the picture came to the National Portrait Gallery it hung in the lobby of a hotel in Saratoga Springs in New York.
