George Washington on Horseback by Rembrandt Peale

SKU 31577

Rembrandt Peale marketed himself as the last living artist to have painted George Washington from life. In 1795, Washington sat for the artist, the 16-year-old son of Charles Willson Peale, in Philadelphia during the last years of the presidency. Later in life, Rembrandt painted numerous portraits of Washington including a large portrait of Washington on horseback intended for the rotunda of the United States Capitol. This 1830 painting may have been an early experiment for the capitol painting.
