Happy Father’s Day! Celebrate with 10% off Your Purchase! (Today Only!)

How often do you think of our Founding Fathers as dads? Personally speaking, I never do. That changed for me the day we acquired an 1865 engraving of Washington with his family.

 

(1865 George Washington and Family print after painting by C. Schussel. Engraved signed by William Sartain)

This engraving was done by William Sartain (1843-1924), a leading engraver of the mid-19th century. It is after an oil-on-canvas by Sartain’s contemporary and painting instructor, C. Schussele. The scene depicts George and Martha Washington seated at a table, with their adopted grandchildren George Washington Parke Custis and Nelly Custis standing nearby.

Until next post,
