Artist's Description

The Washington Monument, a memorial to George Washington, the first President of the United States, is both the world’s tallest stone structure and the world’s tallest obelisk, standing 555 feet in height. It is also the tallest structure in Washington, D.C. The actual construction of the monument began in 1848 but was not completed until 1884, 36 years later. There was a long break in construction due to the Civil War and a lack of funding.

This photograph of the Washington Monument was taken from the Jefferson Memorial and the water it is reflected in is the Tidal Basin, a partially man-made inlet adjacent to the Potomac River.
