Date/Period: Circa 1840s


George Washington, Marble Bust, Confidently Attributed to Horatio Greenough Horatio Greenough (1805-1842) Unsigned, entire view

Measurement: Height: 27"

Material: Marble

Condition: Very good, an old fissure under neck (on chest) was expertly restored and is
not visible unless you know it’s there, displays pristine; cleaned and waxed

Additional Information: This handsome marble Neoclassical bust of George
Washington can be securely attributed to the hand of the renowned expatriate American
sculptor Horatio Greenough (1805-1852). The bust dates to the 1840s, just after
Greenough completed his magisterial seated sculpture of our national hero. It was
common for sculptors to create multiple versions of a figure once the initial one was
sold, allowing them to earn a greater profit. Often this was done when patrons placed an
order. This practice accounts for the different versions of the bust, some are draped
while others are not, for instance.

Characteristic of Greenough’s hand is the sensitively modeled, naturalistic bust of
Washington, the carved marble yielding a sensation of living flesh. The deeply carved,
rippled, volumetric hair is a distinctive and easily recognized feature of Greenough’s art
and is evident in other Washington busts by him in the collections of the Metropolitan
Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. The eyes are also typical in
Greenough’s choice of a blank eye surface, conveying a timeless, classical appearance.
Classical also and employed in most of Greenough’s portraits of great historical
personages, is the draped toga. A dignified heroic image of the first president.
