|Circa 1840, American|
This example was originally part of a group of four family portraits by the same artist that included this portrait, a child in red dress, and a pair of portraits of the parents owned by Bill Samaha in the 1970s.
Although the artist of this splendid portrait is yet unknown, the work shows the hand of an accomplished painter. The figure is flanked on the left by a vibrant green drapery with white fringe and tassels over a panted side table with a book resting upon it. The little girl wears pink and gray ribbons in her brown a strand of beads, an a mechanical pencil on a necklace. She holds a book in her left hand.
Cleaned, relined, and put onto new stretchers, aside from marks from stretcher bars, it is in a superb state of preservation.
