Jean Leon Gerome Ferris: Mount Vernon and Peace

This painting, entitled Mount Vernon and Peace, by the American artist Jean Leon Gerome Ferris depicts Lafayette's last visit to Mount Vernon during this time of peace. They play a game of 'Whist' together, a game that George Washington enjoyed playing. Martha Washington sits with her back toward us and Lafayette and George are on the left and right sides, respectively.
