  George Washington Bust
George Washington Bust Bronze Eleganza
George Washington Bust


This bust of George Washington portrait has brought to us a powerful forward thrust of determination and command. George Washington pursued two interests: military arts and western expansion. In May of 1775 Washington was elected Commander in Chief of the Continental Army. On April 30, 1789, George Washington took his oath of office as the first President of the United States on the balcony of Federal Hall on Wall Street in New York. Bottom of statue measures 8 inches long by 4.75 inches deep. On July 3, 1775, at Cambridge, Massachusetts, General George Washington took command of his poorly trained troops and embarked upon a war that lasted six years. General George Washington realized the best strategy was to harass the British. He would use either a hit and run tactic or if in a major battle would use a fade back and then a swift surprise attack. It was in 1781 with the help of French allies, General George Washington forced the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown. Washington wanted to return to his plantation, however, the new government was not doing well, so George became a prime mover in the steps leading to the Constitutional Convention at Philadelphia in 1787. When the new Constitution was ratified, the Electoral College unanimously elected George Washington President. President George Washington retired after his second term and returned to his plantation. He died three years after his retirement of a throat infection on December 14, 1799. The Nation mourned him for months. If you are a collector of American President sculptures, this bronze bust of President George Washington is sculpted by Houdon and gives us an uncanny balanced look of a general and first president of the United States of America.
