Awaiting Mr. Jefferson
J Luis Lozano
Painting - Oil On Canvas
The flat-bottomed boats or “Batteau” as they were known were a common sight along the James River between the Chesapeake to Lynchburg and all points in between. Awaiting Mr. Jefferson is a depiction of Thomas Jefferson's Batteau named The Spirit of New London after the area south of Lynchburg that he claimed would someday rival New York City. The Batteau Fest is a re-creation of the batteau launching that takes place in Lynchburg, Va during the month of June.
