More About this Item


Description: Eulogium Sacred to the Memory of the Illustrious George Washington, Columbia's Great and Successful Son: Honored be his Name. Benjamin O. Tyler (19th cent.). Copper-Plate engraving. New York: B.O. Tyler, 1817. 18 1/2 x 23 inches sheet. The story behind this work tells volumes about the reputation of Washington among Americans in the first half of the 19th century. Benjamin Tyler?s memorial was first issued at the same time as John Trumbull?s famous print of the Declaration of Independence, and, indeed, it competed with it because Trumbull complained of the situation. This beautiful and fascinating print expresses much about the patriotic fervor of Americans at this time.
Artist or Maker: Benjamin Tyler
Literature: Hand-colored engraving on paper
