Gilbert Stuart: Works

portrayed virtually all the notable men and women of the Federal period in the U.S., and was declared the "Father of American Portraiture" by his contemporaries. Stuart portrayed American and European figures, including George Washington, John and Abigail Adams, John Jay, and Robert Liston. In 1805 he painted the Gibbs-Coolidge Set, the only surviving depiction of the first five presidents. (National Gallery of Art)
