Rate this:
This volume presents the many manifestations of George Washington. Included are fine portraits, ranging from those he actually posed for to postmodern images that deconstruct the icon. Also contained are objects of mass distribution, from glass flasks, tableware and porcelain vases to calendar illustrations, prints and the dollar bill. Spanning more than two centuries, these items tell about the changes in American society as well as about the man portrayed.
