Original Portrait Concept & Composition by Igor V. Babailov
This NEW Portrait of George Washington was created by Igor Babailov, following his intensive historic research on the true likeness of G. Washington. Consequently, this portrait painting was inspired by and based on the most accurate likeness of George Washington, which was captured in his official statue by the great French sculptor, Jean-Antoine Houdon (1741- 1828).
Igor Babailov used his expertise to transform sculpted likeness of George Washington into his portrait painting.
