It was created in 1796, and is considered to be Stuart's most notable work. The painting depicts Washington at age 65 (about three years before his death) on a brown background.

The West Virginia Senate is the upper house of the West Virginia Legislature. There are seventeen senatorial districts. Each district has two senators who serve staggered four-year terms. The Democrats gained two seats in the 2018 elections, bringing their total number of seats to 14, while the Republicans still hold a majority with 20. Senators are elected for terms of four years that are staggered, meaning that only a portion of the 34 state senate seats are up every election.
