Painting, Allegorical Hudson River Valley Painting, Bathsheba At Her Bath

In February of 1984 Mary Black wrote a letter to the owner of this painting, [responding to a letter written by Robert Bishop] she copied Robert Bishop, then director of the American Folk Art Museum. She shared that the picture “fit into a group of religious paintings produced along the Hudson in the years between about 171700 to about 1750. The Albany provenance appears to confirm this grouping. The only other religious painting that is dated is the 1713 “Birth of the Virgin,” signed by Gerardus Duyckinck”.
