Abstract:

Subject: View showing visitors in the Assembly Room of Independence Hall. Men, women, and children promenade, converse, and admire the artifacts that adorn the room with a parquet floor. Framed artwork, predominately from the Charles Wilson Peale portrait collection in addition to Henry Inman's portrait painting of William Penn, and Thomas Sully's portrait painting of Lafayette, line the paneled walls. Under a chandelier, in the rear center of the room stands William Rush's wood statue of George Washington (carved 1815, installed 1824). To the right, a stuffed bald eagle sits atop the Liberty Bell (installed 1852). The bell is displayed on a pedestal adorned with fasces, a banner, and shield and stands near the "Rising Sun" chair, one of a number of chairs lining the room, which was used by George Washington as he presided over the Constitutional Convention. The gallery also includes a writing desk associated by legend with the Declaration of Independence and the framed Thomas Sully painting of the coat of arms of Philadelphia.
