Additional Details:
This rare picture of general Washington in Masonic regalia, was painted from life by Williams of Philadelphia, in 1794 for Alexandria Washington Lodge, No. 22, A. F. & A. M., Of Alexandria, Va., of which Washington was then a Past Master. It is probably the only authentic work showing him in advanced age. The apron and sash worn in the picture were inherited by "Lawrence Lewis," Washington's nephew, who presented them to the Lodge in 1812, where they are still preserved.
