William Moore

It is wonderful that this important painting has come to rest, at least for the time being, at the National Heritage Museum!

The article I wrote with John Hamilton, entitled "Washington as the Master of his Lodge: History and Symbolism of a Masonic Icon," might be of use in making sense of this important painting. It was included the book George Washington American Symbol, edited by Barbara Mitnick and published by Hudson Hills in 1999.

Keep up the good work with this blog!

Best wishes-
