Washington. First in War - First in Peace, and First in the Hearts of his Countrymen

Americans revered George Washington's multi-faceted personality. He was a heroic soldier, celebrated statesman and leader of the new nation. Although posed in a formal military posture, Washington is not shown in his General's uniform. Instead, he is depicted as a civilian in this straight- forward portrait of a man who is dedicated to his country.
