Historic Print Of The Drafting Of The Declaration Of Independence

Will Paulsen

Peter Frederick Rothermel

Large period engravings of Thomas Jefferson are rarely seen in the general market, yet the market seems to have an endless array of small engravings, almost all of which were cannibalized from books. In over forty years of collecting I have only acquired five large engravings. Amongst my collecting colleagues, I am unaware of anyone with more.

This one is by Peter Frederick Rothermel (1817-1895) from Pennsylvania, known for his historic art. The scene shown are some of the Founding Fathers advising Jefferson on his draft of the Declaration of Independence.
