Fictional, bust-length portrait of General George Washington. He is wearing a tri-corned hat with a cockade, a coat with turned-back, buttoned-down lapels, a sash across his chest, and a waistcoat. Washington’s head is turned towards the viewer’s right. The portrait is enclosed within an oval which in turn is set within a dark rectangular frame.
