The Signing of the American Constitution



Hillsdale College Professor of Art Sam Knecht's painting provides a fresh perspective on the signing of the Constitution. That the framers of this document fashioned the most nearly perfect form of self-government in human history is, as George Washington said, "little short of a miracle." The artistry of The Signing of the American Constitution is intended to encourage further study of the Constitution and increased devotion to its underlying principles.
