636. Portraits of George Washington have always been popular. The parent image has normally been Gilbert Stuart's composition that now graces the one-dollar bill. Stuart himself liked the image so much he never gave the portrait to Washington. Instead, he used it to make copies for client requests. Even his student, Thomas Sully, made numerous copies for his own clients. One of the Sully Washington portraits is featured in a Case Study on this site. The below portraits are from the collection of Culver Academies, Culver,  Indiana.
