1780s George Washington Engraving
George Washington (1732-1799)
17" x 13 1/4"
This engraving of Washington was completed in the early 1780s after Lafayette returned from America; with him, he brought a portrait of General Washington by Charles Wilson Peale, which served as the design for this print. The engraving was designed by Bonnieu and engraved by Chevillet. The title translated from French reads, "Was[h]ington, Generalissimo of the United States of American."
