Folk Painting of George Washington by Michigan Barber Cyrus T. Fuery
Exhibited at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, Colonial Williamsburg, 1976
Date/Period: Dated 1917


Folk Painting of George Washington by Michigan Barber Cyrus T. Fuery Exhibited at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, Colonial Williamsburg, 1976, entire view

Measurement: Frame: 36.75" x 47.5"; view: 29.75" x 40.5"

Material: Oil on canvas over the original wooden strainer, modern gilded frame.

Condition: Excellent…There are tiny, patched repairs.

Additional Information: If George Washington were painted by Andy Warhol for a
Campbell Soup can, he might look a good deal like this modernistic, 1917 interpretation
by Cyrus T. Fuery, a barber from Parma, Michigan. Dated 1917 (the first year of U.S.
involvement in WWI) and signed on the reverse.

Fuery’ s oversized canvas (30 x 40.5 inches) shows the hand of an accomplished folk
artist. His treatment of the angular facial features, serpentine brow, and hair are
whimsical, bold, and appealing.

One other work by Feury is known, a portrait of Abraham Lincoln, which is said to have
hung in his barbershop. The whereabouts of the Lincoln portrait are currently unknown.

Provenance: This work was exhibited at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum
in Colonial Williamsburg in a special patriotic exhibit for the 1976 Bicentennial curated
by then-curator Don Walters, the esteemed folk-art expert and long-time antiques
dealer.

George Washington, A Superb Large Portrait
by Philadelphia Artist Robert Street
After Gilbert Stuart
Date/Period: Early 19th Century - SOLD


George Washington, A Superb Large Portrait by Philadelphia Artist Robert Street After Gilbert Stuart, entire view

Measurement: Frame: 27" x 31"; view: 19" x 22.75"

Material: Oil on canvas

Condition: Excellent with only negligible… extremely minor trivial retouching by Tom
Yost. The canvas has been relined; The current frame and mat housing the portrait
were fabricated for this painting are of the fine finest quality.

Additional Information: Attributed, Robert Street (1796-1865) Although painted in the
manner of Gilbert Stuart, the portrait is in a unique, distinctive style and, seen in person,
exudes a quality which might best be described as luminous. It is certainly a fine portrait
of this Founding Father. A nearly identical portrait by Street is in the collection of the
Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

A highly respected and popular portraitist of his time, Robert Street also created
historical and Biblical scenes. Nothing is known of his life before 1815 when he first
exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy except that he was born in Germantown,
Pennsylvania. He continued to exhibit at the Academy in 1817, 1818, and 1822. In 1824
he showed three historical paintings in Washington, D.C., in the same year he painted a
portrait of Andrew Jackson, which later hung in the White House. In 1834, he painted
Joseph Bonaparte, the oldest brother of Napoleon, who was living on an estate in
Bordentown, New Jersey. In 1840 a major exhibition of his work was held at the Artists
Fund Hall in Philadelphia. The show was catalogued and included 172 works by Street
and fifty paintings by past artists. He also participated in group shows at the Artists
Guild until 1845; at the Franklin Institute in 1847 and 1851; at the Pennsylvania
Academy of the Fine Arts until 1861; and at the Apollo Association in New York in 1838
and 1839. Interestingly, four of his children, by three different wives, also became
artists.

Portrait, Profile of George Washington,
After James Sharples or Other Sharples
Family Member [Ellen, Wife of James,
their sons Felix, and James Jr.] Dr. Elisha
Cullen Dick Also Painted a Closely Related Portrait.
Date/Period: 1796-1820 - SOLD


Portrait, Profile of George Washington, After James Sharples or Other Sharples Family Member [Ellen, Wife of James, their sons Felix, and James Jr.] Dr. Elisha Cullen Dick Also Painted a Closely Related Portrait., entire view

Measurement: Frame: 14.25" x 12.25"; view: 9.5" x 7.5"

Material: Oil on canvas

Condition: Untouched original condition

Additional Information: Powdered hair, black coat, white neckcloth; deep blue
hatching in the upper left background area.

The original work executed by James Sharples (c. 1751 – 1811) circa 1796 is
considered one of the most iconic portraits within sitter’s lifetime. George Washington
Parke Custis, Washington’s step-grandson stated that the image is ‘the finest and
purest likeness of the Chief’
and ‘the best likeness of the man extant’. [1.] Eliza Custis,
Washington’s step-granddaughter, described the Sharples portrait as “an admirable
likeness, critically exact”
[2]. The Sharples portrait [Sharpless as he was known in
America] of 1796 is one of the last portraits of the father of our country. The artist, his
wife, and eventually their sons worked in concert producing dozens of copies of james
Sharples’ Washington, to satisfy and eager clientele.

Dr. Elisha Cullen Dick, one of three attending physicians the night President
Washington died was an amateur artist; Dick copied James Sharples' portrait, on
display in the parlor of Washington's home, and that copy is held by Historic Mount
Vernon today. Dr. Dick’s portrait was considered by Gustavus Eisen, a leading expert
on Washington's life portraits, as an accomplished copy, as good as those by the
Sharples family.

[1 & 2] Letters, George W.P. Custis to T.W.C. Moore, June 6 and July 21, 1857,
transcribed in “George Washington Parke Custis’s Opinion of Portraits of Washington,”
The Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, vol. 18, no. 1 (1894), pp. 82-84).
