Oil on canvas; 71.5 inches x 53.25 inches (181.6 cm x 135.3 cm). U.S. Senate, Washington, DC. (First replica by Peale owned by and on view at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia, PA.)
This heroic image of Washington was so popular that Peale went on to create between 75 and 80 replicas with only small variations. In some paintings Washington is in military garb, in others he is in civil dress.
