Alexander Hamilton.JPG

Heroic size portrait of Alexander Hamilton seated in a Klismos chair. He is leaned slightly forward, engaged with the statue of longtime rival Thomas Jefferson across the courtyard. He holds a book in his left hand and a quill in his right. Hamilton was the first Secretary of the Treasury and the primary author of most of the founding economic policies in the US. He was also a major player in the American Revolutionary War, acting as a trusted aide to General George Washington. His time as the leading cabinet member in the first cabinet in US history was critically effective, and his policies are still the foundation of much of the US's economic policy.
