About the Artist

Dale Gallon lives and works in Gettysburg, the site of the pivotal battle of the war, but is a native of Southern California. He began his interest in art & military history at a young age. He graduated from the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles where he earned a scholarship from Hallmark Cards. There, he provided illustration for McDonnell Douglas, Mattel, and taught art at the University of California Long Beach.

In 1980 Dale released his first limited edition Civil War print. During this period the Civil War genre of art that is so widely recognized today was in its infancy. Dale blazed a path for other artists to follow, setting high standards long the way. His love of the battle of Gettysburg drew him, his wife Anne, and their three sons to the East Coast in 1984.

Each of Dale's paintings is a history lesson on canvas. He is known for his attention to detail and historical accuracy. To assist the collector in understanding the history, important people and landmarks are identified on the upper and lower borders of the print. To assist Dale in the complex research, he employs a staff historian who is responsible for researching every detail and writing a comprehensive historical essay. This essay accompanies each print number as the print. Dale Gallon's art stands in a class of its own - for the collector who seeks historical accuracy.

Dale has produced over 200 images. His works are highly sought after worldwide and are currently displayed at the US Army War College in Carlisle PA, The Pentagon, Ft.Leonard Wood MO, Tanenbaum Park & Guilford Battleground in Greensboro, NC. VMI, Command & General Staff College in Leavenworth KS. Minnesota State Capitol, and numerous private collections.
