The organization of this study follows Stuart through the eight cities in which he worked: Newport and Scotland (1755-75), London (1775-87), Dublin (1787-93), New York (1793-94), Philadelphia (1794-1803), Washington (1803-5), and Boston (1805-28). A short essay about the artist's experience in each city precedes catalogue entries on more than ninety portraits, all illustrated in color. A special section is devoted to Stuart's celebrated portraits of George Washington."--Jacket
The genius of Gilbert Stuart by Dorinda Evans( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gilbert Stuart was probably the most gifted American portraitist of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. He is best known for his "Athenaeum" portrait of George Washington, which is today a national icon. In this book, Dorinda Evans combines a wealth of original insights with revealing new documentation to present a long-needed, scholarly treatment of Stuart's life and influential work." "In assessing Stuart's artistic importance, Evans argues that his 1796 "Athenaeum" portrait of Washington - the most recognized likeness of the president - was a landmark in the expression of contemporary ideas about moral strength. More generally, she shows that Stuart's painting reflected a genius for interpreting the sitter's personality and a growing awareness of painting's public role in conveying uplifting messages about social dignity and virtue. She challenges the view that his later paintings show a decline, revealing many as concerned with expressing the human soul in a fresh and naturalistic way." "Evans also explores Stuart's private life, discounting recent portrayals of him as an outcast and a confidence trickster. She concludes that his notoriously erratic behavior, which veered from prolonged lethargy to reckless activity and extravagance, was a sign of manic-depressive illness. Evans gathers information about Stuart from a wide variety of previously untapped sources, including unpublished interviews with the artist that shed new light on controversies over his portraits of Washington and Thomas Jefferson."--Jacket

Biography of George Washington (1732-1799), first President of the United States. Vol. 2 contains chapters 21-40, covering the period between the summer of 1776 (and the subsequent winter at Valley Forge) to the death of George Washington after his presidency. Thus this volume covers most of his command of the Revolutionary Army, his chairmanship of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, and his two terms as President. The chapters chiefly deal with his military and political life, rather than his personal life

A history of the United States. For families and libraries by Benson John Lossing( Book )

1 edition published in 1872 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... Every important event in the history of the United States, from the Aboriginal period to the present time is presented in a concise, but perspicuous and comprehensive manner, without giving those minute and often tedious details, which are valuable to the student, but irksome to the common reader. The history of our Republic is herein popular- ized, and adapted to the use of those who may not find leisure to peruse more extensive works upon the subject. The materials have been drawn from the earlier, most elaborate, and most reliable historians and chroniclers of our continent. The work is constructed upon a new plan, which, it is believed, will be found to be the most acceptable yet offered to the public, for obtaining, with facility, and fixing in the memory, a knowledge of the great events of our truly wonderful history. And having visited a greater portion of the localities made memorable by important occurrences in our country, the writer claims, in that particular, an advantage over his predecessors in this special field, for he has been able to correct errors and give truthful impressions of things and events. An endeavor has also been made to show the cause of every important event, and thus, by developing the philosophy of our history, to make it more attractive and instructive than a bald record of facts"--Preface
