Portrait of George Washington by Rembrandt Peale

Rembrandt Peale was one of the sons of Charles Willson Peale. He was able to paint George Washington from life when he accompanied his father on a trip to Mount Vernon. After George Washington's death, Rembrandt Peale painted the above portrait as an idealized image of the way that he thought that George Washington could best be remembered.
