Mount Vernon 1792 East and West Views Notecards
“No estate in United America is more pleasantly situated than this,” wrote George Washington. Washington settled at Mount Vernon in 1754 and for nearly half-a-century he expanded his Mansion to its present size and carefully developed the ornamental landscape surrounding his beloved home. Although Washington was not a trained architect, he had a remarkable sense of space, proportion, and design that he learned from his extensive travels and various architectural pattern books. In 200 years, no home in America has surpassed the Mansion for its elegance and beauty. These 1792 paintings, attributed to Edward Savage, show the west front and courtyard of the Mansion, with George Washington and his family strolling along the bowling green, and the east front of the Mansion and the surrounding lands of Washington’s 8,000-acre plantation.
This set of 10 cards and envelopes comes with 5 cards each of the west view and the east view of the Mansion. Notecards are 6 1/4" x 4 1/2".
