Description

Horizontal, rectangular print of an east view of Mount Vernon. The mansion is situated in the right atop a grassy hill. In the foreground, three figures are gathered around a dog on the east lawn. To their left, a child facing away from the viewer gestures to a man with outstretched arms standing on the hill. In the distance, a couple points up to the mansion from the bottom of the hill. Trees surround the lawn on the left and boats pass on the Potomac River in the background.

The print is currently in a new frame.
