Nice painting, but he doesn't look "American Civil War" to me. That pull-over blouse with what seems to be embroidery looks rather odd. Possibly a volunteer of some other army in 1860? European? Balkan? South American?

Wonderful find. Could this be a proposed uniform that was not adopted by a unit?

It's probably American fashioned after a European (French?) style uniform. The writing is in English so it's either American or British, but I don't think the Brits ever had a uniform like that.
