In 1824, Rembrandt Peale created an innovative portrait of George Washington that circulated widely in the form of prints like this one. Framed by an oval stone window decorated with oak leaves and the visage of Jupiter, the artist aligned Washington with the leaders of the Roman Republic, whose ideals were often invoked by the Founding Fathers.
