The painting above is just a fraction of the panorama that is on the world’s longest painting, measuring 8 feet tall and a whopping quarter of a mile long, or 1320 feet! It was completed in 1848, and has been painstakingly restored by The New Bedford Whaling Museum of New Bedford, Massachusetts, a process which took over 10 years to complete. You can find out more by visiting their Facebook page here, or their website by clicking here.
They are in the process of digitizing the entire piece so it will be available online, and they are planning an exhibition of the piece later this year. The museum has been trying to find a place to host it, and as of last check I do not know if they have found a place or not. If you get a chance, this could be a great opportunity to see a huge masterpiece!
