The vantage point of this full 360° panorama is taken from The Bowling Green at Mount Vernon. It shows Washington clearly defining man's place in an unimaginably vast landscape. Originally in George Washington's family from the 17th century, the land and buildings of Mount Vernon represent a lifetime of dedication Washington brought to his home. In contrast to the dominance of the natural vista of the Potomac to the east, the panorama of The Bowling Green imprints a deliberate control of design over nature. From the foothold strongly defined by the mansion, the space is uncompromisingly anchored along the southeast-northwest axis, softened only by a serpentine path and planting of trees which flank it on the north and south. The great concession to nature is the open expanse to the northwest, an acknowledgment to the unexplored continent beyond.
The 360-degree panoramic sepia photograph is printed on FujiColor Professional Paper. Nielsen Frosted Walnut frame matted with four-ply acid-free white museum board mounted on 3/16" acid-free white foam core. The framed print measures 40" x 10". Signed and numbered by the photographer, James O. Phelps.
