Promoting the President In celebration of Washington's Birthday [link]
Hudson River Museum, Yonkers

We look for our president in paintings, photographs, and sculpture, where we may see him as a warrior, family man, or a man of faith. Washington, the nation's first soldier and president, is the prototype for political promotion, too. For this exhibition, Gilbert Stuart's famous painting, George Washington, on loan to the Museum, as well as the Museum's collection of artifacts and engravings show this leader in images beautiful, respectful, and, sometimes, flamboyant, that were made to frame our vision of him and charge our patriotism and memories.
