This bust of George Washington was given by the Board of Trustees of the George Washington University in Washington D.C., to the board of Sulgrave Manor in the spirit of the special relationship between the people of Britain and America.
Created for the bicentennial of the United States in 1976, this striking likeness has won international acclaim for portraying the spirit of indomitable will of the "Father of his Country".
The first bronze casting was installed at the George Washington University in 1980. Bicentennial Washington is also displayed at George Washington's Virginia residence, Mount Vernon.
