We put 10,000 portraits of George Washington into schools across America!
Since 2007, Mount Vernon has been providing stunning reproductions of Rembrandt Peale’s famous Porthole Portrait of George Washington to schools, libraries, and government offices across the country. In partnership with patriotic organizations and other passionate supporters, we were able to provide these artworks free of charge to those that requested them.
In the summer of 2015, we met our goal to place 10,000 portraits and are currently in production to deliver these final requests during the 2015-16 school year.
If you would like to purchase a portrait, they are available through the Shops at Mount Vernon
