” Sacred to the Memory of the Illustrious Champion of Liberty General George Washington First President of the United States of America” engraved and published by John Donlevy . The artist lists himself as an “intaglio-chromographic and Electrographic Engraver”. This is a fine example of American calligraphic and stipple engraving. The face of the portrait is based on Stuart’s ” Antheaeum ” painting surrounded by swirls and elaborate calligraphic design typical of this artist. This is the second state, according to Charles Hart’s “Catalogue of the Engraved Portraits of Washington,” (NY: 1904)
The top border has a water stain outside of the image and the edges have some wear, otherwise in good condition.
