New York Times - 3 Georges

New York Times Friday Feb 17th 2006  Coming soon to Mount Vernon, 3 Georges

"A team led by Stuart Williamson, a British artist & sculptor, sculpted the portraits,  and gave them human nuances including subtle changes in eye colour that came with age, and the deportment befitting an aristocrat. Sue Day, a British specialist in wax added human hair and skin tones".

These figures were made by StudioEIS, Brooklyn for Mount Vernon

He, (Ivan Schwartz) and Stuart Williamson the portrait sculptor form London who did (sculpted) the heads of the major figures and oversaw the portraits of the other delegates, reviewed all the painted and drawn studies they could find. "What was most challenging about the Franklin portrait was to achieve the sort of vitality he expressed in everything he did", Mr Williamson said. He tried to combine the monumental feel of the marble bust by Houdon with the wonderful personality traits expressed by Joseph S Duplessis in his 1785 portrait of Franklin which is in the Metropolitan Museum. "He was a little sick at the time," Mr Williamson said. "He was nearly 80 but he still retained this incredibly mischievous spirit".

These figures were made by StudioEIS, Brooklyn for The Constitution Centre, Philadelphia

"I worked with sculptor Stuart Williamson, a consultant at EIS, to give each face a unique expression before the clay itself was molded to create wax reproductions. Sue Day, an artist also working as a consultant at the studio, has painted these wax faces to look extremely lifelike, down to the pale skin with ruddy cheeks and grayish-blue eyes that Gilbert Stuart described for Washington. Reddish hair will be implanted in the younger two and tied back in the wiglike fashion of the time; the 57-year-old will have grayish hair to simulate the powdered look he would have had for the inauguration scene".
