|Gilbert Stuart Self-portrait, 1778|
|Stuart's unfinished portrait of Washington,|
the last in a series of highly lucrative
copies of the original commissioned
by Martha Washington.
|Noticed the engraver |
reversed Stuart's image.
|Lansdowne Portrait of George Washington, 1796, Gilbert Stuart|
|Dolley Madison, 1804, Gilbert Stuart|
|The National Portrait Gallery display of the Lansdowne Portrait flanked on the left by Stuart's painting of Martha Washington and on the right his famous unfinished portrait of George.|
|Thomas Sully's portrait of|
Washington (1820) is based
upon Stuart's version but
corrects the stature
problems of the Lansdowne.
|Stuart's Lansdowne image|

seems to make the president
look shorter than his six-foot,
