Folk Art Portrait, Handsome Family of Six
Anonymous, possibly Continental, circa 1830 – 1840
Pastel on vellum


Stunning Early 19th Century Family Portrait, Agreeable and Handsome Composition
Unique in its style and subject matter, pastel portraits from the first half of the nineteenth
century are exceedingly rare in this outstanding condition. The vibrant colors and
imagery are pleasing. It is interesting that the elder brother standing in the center has a
striking resemblance to his father while three young children closely resemble the
mother…sharing blue eyes and facial features that the young man does not have in
common. This could simply be coincidence, or the young man may be progeny of the
gentleman’s first marriage with the three younger children resultant of the current union.
Each of the children hold an object that may represent their virtue, youth, and learning.
On the book cover is a fine [39] written in pencil, perhaps suggesting the year of the
painting’s creation. Pastel is an extremely delicate medium, the exacting level of detail,
the distinct expressions, and textiles suggest an artist with some formal training.
The painting was recently expertly reframed; the backboards had previously not been
disturbed…within were found Vermont newspaper fragments. (Pictures available)
(Fine condition; frame: 22.5 x 30.5"; view: 27 x 18.5")

Likely Connecticut or Vicinity
An accomplished waist-length composition
William Jennys (1774 to 1859)

Antique Portrait of a Gentleman, By William Jennys, Oil on Canvas, close up view

Jennys advertised in 1792 as a portrait painter in Norwich, Connecticut; he was active mid-1790s throughout the Connecticut River Valley and New York. He settled in Newburyport, Massachusetts in 1804, where he was most productive and financially successful; after 1817 he moved to Littleton, New Hampshire.
(The painting was long ago relined and mounted within a period frame displaying a wonderful surface. Frame: 29.5 by 34"; view: 24 by 29")

Literature: William Lamson Warren, "The Jenny's Portraits," in the Connecticut Historical Society BULLETIN, volume 20 (Hartford, October 1955), number 4, pp. 97-128. See the illustration for figure 10; page 104, "Unidentified Portrait," on page 128 appears this further note: "UNIDENTIFIED PORTRAIT. The subject of this portrait is said to be Thomas Seymour (1735-1829), first Mayor of Hartford. Portrait attributed to William Jenny's. (25 by 29 inches. [Figure 10]. Relined, modern stretchers. Lent by Dr. and Mrs. Robert Mallory III, Rye, N.Y."

Exhibited: "Richard and William Jennys Exhibition, November 1955 through January 1956; the Connecticut Historical Society, Hartford, Conn." (See page 122.)

Portrait, Lady in Blue
Attributed to Joseph Blackburn (Active 1752 through 1777)


Portrait, Lady in Blue
Attributed to Joseph Blackburn (Active 1752 through 1777), entire view

The appeal of Blackburn's work is apparent in this half-length portrait of a stylish young lady with fashionably rouged cheeks rendered in an elegant pose; a pinned ribbon ornaments her bodice and meticulously rendered lace is featured on her sleeves and the square-cut neck of her dress. The subjects outstretched arms and hands are typical of Blackburn's oeuvre. The canvas was long ago re-stretched; there is extremely minor scattered in-painting.
(Dimensions: 27.75 by 35.75".)
