Civil War Artist John Paul Strain Visits Franconia Museum

Rose Hill Raid

Nationally acclaimed historical Civil War artist John Paul Strain released his new work “The Rose Hill Raid” at the Franconia Museum on 25 August 2007.  Although he has produced other historical art, he is most noted for his series of Civil War paintings and prints.  His national reputation has been built based on his historic authenticity, and avid collectors prize his limited edition artwork.  While at the Franconia Museum he signed prints and donated a framed archival Museum edition.  It is prominently displayed in the Franconia Museum.  What was amazing is that he generously gave half of the proceeds of the sale of the prints to the Franconia Museum.  Earning the Franconia Museum almost three thousand dollars.  He also left copies of the prints with the Franconia Museum for sale so if you missed the event on 25 August you still have an opportunity to purchase one.  Currently the Franconia Museum has 45 Signed and Numbered prints at $200 plus tax, and three Classic Canvas Giclee at $575 plus tax.  

If you are interested in purchasing a print please contact Gregg Dudding at 703-971-4860 or by email

Don’t forget…Half of the proceeds of the selling of the prints go directly to the Franconia Museum!
