Silk embroidered memorial from Huber - Gearge Washington

Silk embroidered memorial to George Washington
Pennsylvania c. 1815

Mourning pictures commemorating the death of George Washington became extremely popular after his death and were stitched by many young ladies in a number of schools from Virginia to New England. This naive rendition is based on an engraving by Samuel Seymour which shows Mount Vernon in background and a symbolic urn with Washington’s face.

Silk and paint on silk; 20’ x 20 ¼” sight.
