Moritz Furst, designer. American Institute Premium Medal. Struck by William and John Mott, Philadelphia, 1831.
Gift of Charles Henry Taylor, n.d.
Awarded to John Pendleton for excellence in lithography, this bronze medal is a rare survivor. Several prints by Pendleton could be contenders for the 1831 winner, including a portrait of Washington after Rembrandt Peale, a genre scene of a woman with a miniature, or a view of Niagara Falls. This medal was one of many that Charles Henry Taylor collected and donated to the Society.
