INTRODUCTION 

George Washington died at Mount Vernon 
on December 14, 1799. Numerous portraits 
of him, painted and engraved, existed at the 
time of his death. When, in 1880, the late 
W. S. Baker published in Philadelphia his 
useful compendium, "The Engraved Portraits 
of Washington," he was able to catalogue and 
describe four hundred and thirty-four different 
portraits. His efforts deserved, and have re 
ceived the gratitude of all collectors of Wash- 
ingtoniana. He was the pioneer in his 
province, and to his sagacious industry all 
other investigators are bound to acknowledge 
their indebtedness. But Mr. Baker could not 
escape the pressure of those limitations under 
which all makers of catalogues are destined 
to work when they break new ground. Since 
1880 many portraits of Washington, unknown 
to or undescribed by Baker, have been brought 
to light, and collectors have come to realize 
more and more that the iconography of

VI INTRODUCTION. 

Washington, like that of Napoleon, Franklin, 
and Lincoln, offers an extraordinarily fruitful 
field for research. 

The Grolier Club commemorates in the 
present exhibition the centenary of the death 
of Washington. Such a tribute is, however, 
necessarily restricted in scope, and perhaps 
of transitory effect. It has been decided, 
therefore, that the interest of the Club in that 
side of Washington s history which is more 
particularly significant to its members, shall 
take permanent form in a new catalogue of 
the engraved portraits of our first President, a 
catalogue which shall include all the portraits 
discovered since the publication of Mr. Baker s 
book, or which have been omitted in that work, 
and which shall correct such errors as it con 
tains. Mr. Charles Henry Hart has con 
sented to undertake the task, and the result 
of his labors will presently appear as one of 
the regular publications of the Club. It is ex 
pected that this will be the standard work for 
which collectors have been waiting. The 
brief handbook to which these remarks are 
prefixed, it may be added, is issued merely 



INTRODUCTION. Vll 

for the purpose of providing a convenient 
guide to the exhibition. It is not in any 
sense based on the work prepared by Mr. 
Hart. 

The space in the gallery of the Club does 
not admit of an attempt to exhibit a com 
plete collection of the mass of engraved por 
traits which have risen around the personality 
of Washington. The aim of the committee 
has been rather to place on view a number 
of the rarer prints, with a selection of others 
sufficient to give the spectator a broad con 
ception of the manner in which the illustrious 
subject has been treated by successive genera 
tions of engravers. 



The Committee of Arrangements begs to 
thank Judge Mitchell and Hampton L. 
Carson, Esq., of Phila., G. R. Barrett, Esq., 
of Boston, and Mrs. C. C. Worthington 
and W. C. Crane, Esq., of New York (who 
are not members of the Club), for rare 
prints loaned.

PORTRAITS OF WASHINGTON. 49 

The following paintings and drawings are shown as 
types of Washington, from which many engravings 
and lithographs were made. 

273. Portrait of General Washington. 

Height, 36 in., width, 28 in. 
Painted 1780, by John Trumbull. 
The general is represented at full length, in 
uniform, holding his hat in his right hand, 
which rests on his sword. He holds a roll 
of paper in his left hand; a negro servant 
in a red turban and blue coat is seen at the 
right, by the side of the general s charger; 
West Poiirt and the Hudson River in the 
background. 

This is the earliest known portrait of 
Washington painted in oil by Trumbull. 
Ten years elapsed before he painted the 
second portrait, now hanging in the New 
York City Hall. 

The features closely resemble some of 
the Peale portraits painted during the Rev 
olution. The painting exhibited belonged 
to Mr. De Neufville, the Dutch banker at 
whose house in Amsterdam Col. Trumbull 
resided in 1781, while trying to negotiate a 
loan for the revolted Colonies. 

This portrait, well known through the 
engraving by Valentine Green, has been 
lost sight of for nearly a century, but was 
discovered last year in London, and brought 
to this country. 



50 EXHIBITION OF ENGRAVED 

274. The Gibbs-Channing Washington. 

Full bust, to the right, on canvas. 

H. 28 in., W. 24. 

Extract of a letter from Dr. Wm. F. Channing 
from whom the present owner purchased the painting 
in 1889. 

" The Gibbs Washington is the representative pic 
ture of Washington s first sitting to Stuart in Sept., 
1795. This sitting originated the first type of the 
portrait by Stuart, showing the right side of Wash 
ington s face. The Vaughn picture (painted for 
Sam l Vaughn, sent to London, engraved by Hollo- 
way, and published there in 1796) arTd other copies 
which exist belonging to this type, were all painted, 
though perhaps not finished, in the latter part of 1795 
or early part of 1 796. The Gibbs Washington was 
sold by Stuart at an early date, to his warm per 
sonal friend Col. George Gibbs (died 1833) of New 
York, with the statement that it was on the easel 
while Washington was sitting, and worked upon 
from life. At a later period Col. Gibbs, having pur 
chased from Stuart a set of his portraits of the Pres 
idents of the United States, sold the Gibbs picture 
to his sister, Mrs. William Ellery Channing, who 
gave it, thirty years ago, to her son Dr. Wm. F. 
Channing, the present owner and writer of this let 
ter. I have a vivid recollection of the picture nearly 
sixty years ago, hanging in the house of my father, 
William Ellery Channing, in Boston. The Gibbs 
Washington has thus never been out of the posses 
sion of the Gibbs-Channing family since it left 
Stuart s hands."
