"Washington at Fort Necessity" July 3, 1754 by Ray W. Forquer
.....................................................

In 2004, artist Ray Forquer released the first-ever depiction of George Washington's day of major combat at Fort Necessity, amidst his mud-soaked men in the small stockade. Here we see the bitter reality of war through Washington's eyes as he looks upon the dead, the dying, and a few who are too drunk to serve. This collector's edition print (275 have been created) is sure to become one of the most sought-after mementos of the 250th anniversary of Washington's first major battle.

Ray Forquer first created a pastel sketch of this scene 10 years ago. Then as the 250th anniversary of the battle approached, he took up the subject again, creating an oil painting over a period of several months. Helping him on this project were several reenactors who appeared in When the Forest Ran Red and George Washington's First War, including Bryan C. Cunning as Col. George Washington.

Washington at Fort Necessity plays a special role in the When the Forest Ran Red Special Edition DVD, helping to convey the misery, and hopelessness, and squalor of Washington and his Virginians. The artwork measures 12" x 19 1/4" on 16 1/2" x 23 3/4" rag paper.

250 signed and numbered prints $175.00 each + $12.00 shipping

Each print includes a Certificate of Authenticity, a biography of Ray Forquer, and a description of the scene presented in Washington at Fort Necessity.
