Portrait of Benjamin Frank
Artwork images are copyright of the artist or assignee
A portraitist in oils and wax and also a worker in medal, Joseph Wright was best known for his portraits of George Washington and his wife, Martha, made possible around 1783 by recommendations to the Washingtons from Benjamin Franklin.  Wright did two types of Washington portraits, three-quarter length busts, which are at the Maryland and Pennsylvania Historical Societies, and profile busts, one of which is in the Cleveland Museum.  He also modeled a clay bust of Washington.
