I've decided to go ahead and do another flat (relief). This one will be of Lt. Col. William Washington, another known American cavalry officer from the American Revolution. Like Lee, he will also be based on another of the Peale portraits. Charles Willson Peale probably painted the museum portrait of Washington sometime in 1783, after the subject’s release from British captivity following the evacuation of Charleston. In the painting, Washington wears the white uniform coat of the Third Continental Light dragoons. The Lieutenant Colonel sports the fashion of only one epaulette as the style of wearing saber belts over the right shoulder (rather than from the waist) then dictated.
