Gallery Guide

Welcome to the gallery guide to nearly four hundred of George Stuart’s portraits of Historical Figures now exhibited on this site. Each Figure portrayed was important to the political power structure of their time. Mr. Stuart sculpts each subject as a three-dimensional, quarter life-size portrait. Viewers get a firsthand view of how these special appeared and their historical clothing.

The gallery exhibits are organized in topical groups much as they were created to support Stuart’s entertaining monologs. To date we are exhibiting groups representing World History, American history, Chinese history, English history, Russian history, and more, including the histories of France and Italy. In addition, there are multinational groups including the Renaissance and Reformation, the Movement West, and more. Check back frequently for new groups.
