George Washington by White House Historical Association
Book DescriptionThe first work of art purchased for the White House was a full-length portrait of President George Washington, painted by Gilbert Stuart in 1797. Thanks to its rescue by First Lady, Dolley Madison, it is the only object that has remained in the White House collection since before the British torched the building during the war of 1812. This portrait is the focal point of Scala's new 4-fold edition celebrating the White House collection of paintings and objects identified with the first president. Published in cooperation with the White House Historical Association, this book is fully illustrated with images of fine and decorative arts objects in the White House collection related to George Washington and his presidency, including personal possessions, portraits, paintings, sculpture, documents, ephemera and commemorative objects - symbols not only of the man but of the new nation that revered him.
