This is an 1844 engraving of President George Washington. The print was issued by G. Stuart in Albion, New York and engraved by H. S. Sadd.
This standing portrait shows President George Washington in front of neoclassical columns. In his right hand, he holds a dress sword, hinting at his military prowess and his significant role as Commander in Chief. To his left is a table strewn with books, scrolls, and quill and inkpot to signify rule of law.
This print was published after Washington's death, to celebrate his importance as one of the founders of our great nation. His visage is based on the famous "Lansdowne" portrait by Gilbert Stuart, painted in 1796.
