Homes of Washington, D.C. – House Portrait Collection

House Portrait Collection of Georgetown in Washington, D.C.!

The District of Columbia is one of the most historic area in all of the United States. The city abounds with Neoclassical buildings and monuments and along with Roman, Egyptian and Greek inspired architecture. Today we’ll be taking a walk through the streets of Georgetown, Capital Hill Neighborhood and many other nooks of this historically abundant city. To quote an excerpt from my new book, “Hand Painted Homes”:

Behind the monuments and stately institutions of Washington, D.C., there is a wealth of history in the architectural style of every home in and around the city. Having resided just a few miles south of the D.C. area, I enjoyed exploring the historic heritage of the city and building my collection of paintings representing interesting historic homes.

The earlier built homes in D.C. are mainly Georgian and Federal, but Italionate, Victorian, and Greek Revivals started turning up in the 1800’s. Colonial Revivals and Neo-Classial Revivals all began popping up in the 1900’s. It’s been an absolute joy painting all of these historic homes and I hope you enjoy viewing them! Let’s begin.
