1. This portrait of George Washington has not been located or identified, but it may be a copy of John Trumbull’s 1780 portrait of Washington owned by Jean de Neufville and known as the “De Neufville Washington.” De Neufville apparently commissioned an otherwise unidentified artist named Giraúd to copy Trumbull’s work. For the Trumbull portrait, Giraúd’s copy, and the possibility that de Neufville gave the copy to JA , see Jean de Neufville’s letter of 7 Feb., note 1, and references there (vol. 12:231).
