. In 1780 John Trumbull completed and gave to Leendert de Neufville a portrait of George
Washington done from memory. The following year Valentine Green issued an engraving
in mezzotint of Trumbull’s work. Known as the “De Neufville Washington,” the portrait
is now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Theodore Sizer, The Works of Colonel John Trumbull: Artist of the American Revolution
, rev. edn., New Haven, 1967, p. 81, fig. 90; Gustavus A. Eisen, Portraits of Washington
, 3 vols., N.Y., 1932, 2:470–471, 586). Although no copy of Trumbull’s portrait has
been identified, Giraud may have copied it for Jean de Neufville.
Neufville apparently presented JA
with a portrait or print of Washington by Trumbull (from Neufville, 5 July 1782
, Adams Papers
). Similarly an inventory of the furnishings of the U.S. legation at The Hague completed
in June 1784 includes an otherwise unidentified portrait or print of Washington (filmed
at 14 May 1782, Adams Papers, Microfilms
, Reel No. 357).
