Reverse Painting of George Washington on Glass

c. 1820, Reverse Painting on Glass of George Washington, Very Fine.

Unsigned (we've seen some signed by W.M. Prior and others with his label on the reverse). The painting measures about 20" x 17", with the frame measures 25.5"x 23.5". Washington is exquisitely painted in warm earth tones, subtle grays, whites, and tans. This simple, original gilt-framed, life-size portrait features George fastidiously attired in a ruffled shirt and high collar black coat of the era. Some of the paint has begun to chip and fall away on Washington's face including off the tip of his nose, but this could be easily restored by a professional The gilt frame is probably contemporary, with the rough-sawn wood backing still in place. Always popular, these reverse paintings make great display pieces.
