Gilbert Stuart

The most successful and resourceful portraitist of America's early national period, Gilbert Stuart (1755–1828) possessed enormous natural talent, which he devoted to the representation of human likeness and character. This retrospective exhibition highlights his achievement by displaying a carefully selected group of portraits of exceptional quality, ranging in date from the early works he produced in Newport, Rhode Island, to those executed in Boston at the end of his brilliant career. There is a special section devoted to Stuart's celebrated portraits of George Washington.
