Thomas Jefferson by John Trumbull

Artist John Trumbull completed an image for a close friend of Jefferson’s residing in London. Again the artist paints him in fashionable day wear but with very formally dressed and powdered hair for a portrait that would be shown to members of London society. Though the United States might share many of the same clothing styles popular in London and Europe, a more casual interpretation of fashion was often preferred by Americans.
