Painting of Mount Vernon c.1820

The scene was copied after an aquatint titled Mount Vernon in Virginia, delineated by Alexander Robertson, engraved by Francis Jukes (1745-1812), and published in London, 1800. Silk embroideries and paintings of Mount Vernon, George Washington's home, were quite popular art projects for young girls to undertake in the early 1800s. This example was probably worked in New England and is unusually well executed.

Watercolor on paper; 17" x 22 1/2" framed.
