Attractive Painted Portrait of George Washington. United States, c. early 1920's. The painting, in the manner of the popular 18th century English and Continental miniatures painted on ivory. Here painted in what looks like oil on ivory-textured celluloid, America's first president is shown in middle age, perhaps a bit older than theWashington depicted in the famous John Trumbull painting, and also somewhat fleshier. His hair is medium gray, with hints of brown, and he wears a high-collared jacket in burgandy. The background in a neutral green. Signed by "Renny" in the lower right. Mounted on old red velvet and gold-toned frame. Visible size of image: 3-1/4" x 2-1/2".
Estimated Value $500 - 750.
