"Statue by Studio EIS, of the Marquis de Lafayette, informing GEN George Washington & LTC Alexander Hamilton that the French will support the Americans (in the Revolutionary War)". This NJ sculpture is one of my favorites.
The Rotunda of the Virginia Capitol (Richmond) displays a life-size statue of George Washington, created by French artist Jean-Antoine Houdon. The statue is the only one that Washington actually posed for. Visited here favorite statue of all.
George Washington, like many men of the time, greatly enjoyed outdoor activities such as fishing and riding horses. Enjoying nature was Washington's primary source of rejuvenation and renewal during his two critical terms as our president.
