Comment

  • Museum's website (accessed April 18th, 2019) :
    After Houdon's undraped bust of George Washington modeled at Mount Vernon in 1785. Differs somewhat from the terra cotta original and early documented casts, most noticeably in the slightly upturned corners of the mouth and the tilt of the head.
