About this Anthony Wayne Portrait


Anthony Wayne by James Sharples, Sr. (1751-1811), British pastelist.

This pastel on paper drawn from life, c. 1795 or 1796, probably before Wayne left for his post in Detroit, not long before his death on December 15, 1796.

Independence National Historical Park.
