First Legislative Assembly in the New World

The governor, Council members, and burgesses meet in unicameral session in the first meeting of Virginia’s General Assembly in the summer of 1619. This fanciful rendering of the event was made by twentieth-century artist Jack Clifton. The painting is from the Commonwealth of Virginia's art collection.
