George Washington Farming

George Washington on the Farm

This is a wonderful illustration showing George Washington as the Gentleman Farmer on his estate at Mount Vernon. Washington is pictured among Black field hands, who are bringing in a bountiful Hay harvest. Several young children are seen playing in the foreground of the picture. The Mount Vernon home is pictured in the background. This is a beautiful piece of artwork, and captures Washington in one of his quieter, more peaceful moments.
