George and Martha Washington, Portraits from the Presidential Years
By Ellen G. Miles. ISBN 0-8139-1886-3. Copyright 1999. Softcover with 56 pages.
Ellen G. Miles offers, quite literally, a unique portrait of the original first couple. Responding to a near-constant flow of requests, George and Martha Washington sat for about two dozen portraits from 1789 to 1797. They are collected here in this elegantly illustrated volume. The images vary widely in treatment and setting.
