    Description

    George Washington: Folk Art Painting of Mt. Vernon. 23.5" x 18.5" oil on canvas depicting George and Martha Washington standing in front of their Mt. Vernon home. The President and First Lady appear in the right foreground, arm-in-arm, while the General gestures towards a pathway leading to the entrance to their home, extending his welcome. Small sailing boats and a three-masted ship float along the Potomac. Six people (visitors, workers or family members) are depicted, as well. Quite charming. The work is unsigned and may date circa 1830. Mild crazing, cleaned and relined some years ago, housed in an old gilt frame. One small repaired tear in the branches of one tree, plus possible restoration to shrubbery in the lower left corner.
