"General Washington - Late President of the United States of America" Reverse Painting on Glass
March 21, 1801 (Publishing Date) Federal Period, Rare Hand-painted Reverse Painting on Glass of George Washington, "General Washington - Late President of the United States of America," with "London: Published March 21, 1801, by Haines & Son, No. 19, Rolls Buildings, Fetter Lane.," Very Fine.
This original, classic Reverse Painting Portrait of George Washington measures 14" x 10" (by sight). It is nicely framed, housed within a decorative modern wooden frame to 16.75"x 12.75" and ready for hanging on display. "London: Published March 21, 1801, by Haines & Son, No. 19, Rolls Buildings, Fetter Lane." is printed in a much smaller type size along the bottom. Here, George Washington is exquisitely painted in warm earth tones, subtle grays, whites and tans. He is attired is a ruffled shirt and high collar black coat of the era.

It is original, hand-painted on its early period glass having the proper scattered internal bubbles, including one located just under his right eye, and other characteristics correct to the 1800 period. A fine 4" crack in the glass at the upper right corner has been expertly repaired, not affecting or anywhere near the important central image of Washington. There is some overall expected discoloration and yellowing, attesting to its originality and age. An extremely rare historic and decorative period piece that any collector or institution should include in their collection.
