William Pate, 1861.
Lithograph. 22 1/2" x 30". Repair to upper margin, minor surface abrasions, in good condition.
Historical scene depicting president George Washington laying on his bed before his death. Martha Washington sits on a chair and clasps her hands together, while two men behind his bed, presumably doctors look on harrowingly, and an African-American man, likely a slave, stands off to the side. Some scuffing and repairs. A significant moment in American history.
