Why all the posters of Washington: Working on a series for posterattic.com on artwork, portraits and jewelry created during George Washington's lifetime. We well be putting up as much as time allows. Take a look!
About This Piece: When he was eighteen, Rembrandt Peale painted a portrait of Washington from life in the presence of his father, Charles Willson Peale. During the remainder of his career, Rembrandt demonstrated a near obsession with Washington and replicated this famous portrait seventy-nine times. The stone oval derives from the seventeenth-century European fashion for tromp l'oeil stone casements, a format Peale may have observed during periods of study in Europe.
