Rare Revolutionary War Engraving of George Washington
c. 1775 American Revolutionary War Era, General George Washington Engraved Portrait, "Washington General Dans L'Armee Des Americains," Framed, Choice Very Fine.
A fine quality Engraved Portrait of George Washington, measures about 5" x 7.5" (by sight) in modern wood frame 8" x 10". It bears no artist's signature but possible traceable to "Alexander Campbell," a pseudonym of an artist or artists who created engraved portraits of Washington which were published in London in 1775. This is a 3/4-length portrait of Washington, shown dressed in his military uniform with cocked hat, pointing to a battle in the right distance, right hand upon hip. Inscription reads, "Washington General Dans L'Armee Des Americains." We date this image to 1775, however a pencil notation in lower left reads 1787, as does a label on verso. Image in very fine condition with some light foxing, confined mostly to the lower portion with the inscription. An impressive, classic early image of George Washington.
