This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known for his panoramic views of the Mississippi River Valley and for his traveling demonstrations of his pieces, John Banvard was from New York City and settled in Louisville, Kentucky from where he traveled extensively on the Mississippi River for subject matter.

He was part of a group of artists including John Rowson Smith, John Egan, Samuel Hudson, and Leon Pomarede who competed with each other to create the largest and most accurate views of this region. One of Banvard's river valley scenes began as twelve feet high and thirteen-hundred feet long and was enlarged from there.

In 1846, he began to travel with this panorama, now lost, and in London, England more than six-hundred thousand people came for the viewing. He took the painting to Windsor Castle for a private showing to Queen Victoria. Also while traveling abroad, he created a panorama of the Holy Land and the Nile River valley.
