Pickett’s Charge, which will spread itself around the walls of the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC for the next year, is a monumental 400ft linear work inspired by the Gettysburg Cyclorama, French artist Paul Philippoteaux’s vast 1883 depiction of the final assault in the Battle of Gettysburg, often seen as the war’s turning point. Bradford talks about his work here.
