His Excellency George Washington Lieut. Genl. of the Armies of the United States of America

Title

His Excellency George Washington Lieut. Genl. of the Armies of the United States of America

Description

This print was engraved by John Galland (active 1796-1817) around 1798 after a print by engraver David Edwin (1776-1841). Both Galland and Edwin’s prints cite F. Bartoli as the painter of the portrait. Little is known about Bartoli, and no such painting of Washington is recorded today. The print, a hand-colored stipple engraving, depicts Washington as a general. It may have been inspired by Washington’s reappointment as Commander-in-Chief.
