    Description

    George Washington: Early, Well-Executed Oil on Canvas Portrait. 28" x 22.5" oil on canvas depicting our first President in profile. Not signed or dated, but a very fine portrait likely done in the pre-Civil War period. It has been professionally cleaned and relined. What makes this particularly distinctive is the fact that it is not the typical Gilbert or Peale-inspired Washington portrait. It does appear to be modelled after the work of James Sharples, Sr.
