Description

Finely engraved portrait of General George Washington, published in London by James Heath.

Heath's image is drawn from Gilbert Stuart's 1797 portrait of Washington. Heath copied this image without permission from the Stuart portrait then owned by the Marquess of Lansdowne (the famed "Lansdowne portrait"). Adding to the insult, he miscredited the artist as "Gabriel Stuart."

At least three versions of this print were made under Heath's name.
