Catalogue Note

The presidential dislike of Furst’s work was expressed by his son, who noted “There is too much projection in the point of the nose; and the head and shoulders are too big, and look to belong to a very fat man.” These comments were specifically directed at the large and small medals; only the portrait of the middle size (as here) met with the Adamses' approbation.
