Constitution Centre

"George Washington took my breath away, but Franklin leaves me completely without oxygen. This is great art. I just love it. It captures the moment and the man beautifully. Franklin was old, sick, and in considerable pain during the Convention. Yet he was alert, interested, and engaged. He, perhaps more so than some of the other delegates, sensed the historical awe of the moment of the Signing and knew how fragile this agreement was until it was ratified and put into action. This portrait captures all these things subtley and in a very human context. It is a new Franklin, but also one that will be familiar to anyone who has seen the many images of him that exist. My heartiest congratulations to Stuart Williamson and everyone at the studio. It is a tour de force".
