My cousin found an old image of what looks to be George Washington next to a lady reading a book. I can only guess that it's likely his wife Martha or his mother Mary Ball Washington.

Anyone know anything about the original? I know it's a reprint because she mentioned it was cardboard and old.

84102

I want to say Martha, but I'm curious as to the original. The man in the painting of the background. The silhouette on the wall. They all remind me an artist but I can't place it. I googled a bit and couldn't find anything on it either.

Thank you. Been trying to figure out who it was. Sad that it only sold for 2400 dollars... from such a notable artistic family.
