I'm going to forward it to my brother who is a huge Founding Fathers buff. I'd love to see what you have to say about a DC-related sculpture or something.

Of course, I know you are busy with school, your son, and life in general, so no worries if you can't or aren't interested. I have to doubt Browere's artistic abilities based off that horrid mop of hair he put on the former president's head alone forgetting the fact that he almost asphyxiated the president! You know what's funny, heidenkind?
Browere had the gall to stay at Monticello for dinner that same night.
Apparently Bowere was quite the chatterbox at the dinner table too, which understandably was taxing on Jefferson who recovered enough to sit at the table too. Annette Gordon-Reed mentioned that during dinner Bowere was "so boorish and insensitive that he actually joked about having almost killed the former president of the United States.

You know what I just realized? If Jefferson actually had died during the casting process, then two American presidents would have died right after their portraits were taken. I've blogged about FDR's death and unfinished portrait here. Nicjor79, I agree with you about the Stuart painting.

The Clever Pup says:. September 19, at am. The sculptor loosened into a smile. It does me good, once a year, to feel my chosen art matters so violently to so many people.

Eliza peeled open the paper, wishing the two of them were in the workshop at Grosvenor Square, instead of amid the humid flurry of Opening Day.
