Nathaniel Currier's 1844 Presidential Group
The Gale listing includes six versions of Currier's popular group portrait issued in 1844, each showing Polk as "President Elect." The following are hand colored, small folio prints issued by N. Currier in 1844. Each shows Washington, just above an image of the Declaration of Independence, and surrounded by the following ten Presidents.
A striking group portrait of the Presidents of the United States issued at the time of the Centennial. This engraving, with the images based "From Authentic Portraits," was issued in Washington, D.C. and it distinctively celebrates the Chief Executives of the "First Century." 18 oval portraits are laid out on an engraved background and the quality of the engraving, with the rich impression, makes this gallery a most impressive decorative as well as historical document. Facsimile signatures of the Presidents are placed below the image. We have not found any reference to this print, nor have we seen it before, so it is rare as it is wonderful. $950
