George Washington stands before you in a full-length portrait by Gilbert Stuart. The painting, done in 1796, is known as the Lansdowne portrait because it was a gift to the Marquis of Lansdowne, an English supporter of American independence, from Senator and Mrs. William Bingham of Pennsylvania.
One of the originals is still hanging in the White House today as it was saved by First Lady Dolley Madison during the burning of the White House by the British during the War of 1812
For a donation of $150, a large framed portrait of this painting will be presented to a local South Carolina school.
