The heroic image of George Washington is inspired by the circa 1823 portrait by Rembrandt Peale known as the "Porthole Portrait" which was painted 24 years after Washington's death. Peale based more than 70 version of this portrait on a life study done of Washington in 1795 when the General was 63 and the artist was 17. Charles Wilson Peale, a prominent American artist and friend of the revolution was instrumental in arranging sitting with Washington for his son, Rembrandt Peale, the unproven young artist. The miniature masterpiece is 2 ¾" x 3 ½". Wooden display easel included.
