Julia Morrisroe is a painter and associate professor at University of Florida. Looking at Painting began as a way to share my commitment to look and occasionally write about a wide variety of painting, contemporary and historical. In particular I'm looking at this as public commonplace book, a long term project to explore what I mean when I say 'thats a painting'.

Gilbert Stuart's unfinished 1796 portrait of George Washington was used for the presidents image on the dollar bill and as a reference for the many portraits he and his daughters produced of this beloved president.
