From the time Washington took command of the army at Cambridge a very general public interest was aroused in the personal appearance of the Commander-in-Chief. The many engraved portraits of Washington which were published during his lifetime bear upon their face the evidence of their own identity and genuineness. Not so, however, the oil portraits which have as a rule no date or signature: their authenticity rests partly upon their inherent quality but more particularly upon their history or pedigree.
