Study for Here Comes the Bride, 1759

Description (Brief)
This sheet with a sketch of George Washington in 1759 and notes about weather in Virginia in December, 1818, demonstrates some of the care Ferris took over his historical pictures. He researched the subjects meticulously. This sketch shows a Washington very similar to the one in Ferris’s painting Here Comes the Bride, 1759, circa 1930.
