Portrait, ‘Johannes Wendell, Albany, N. America’ 1719…SPECTACULAR
American School, Anonymous
Date/Period: 1719


Portrait, ‘Johannes Wendell, Albany, N. America’ 1719…SPECTACULAR American School, Anonymous, entire view

Measurement: Frame: 56.75" x 46.5"; view: 45.5" x 37.25"

Material: Oil on canvas, outstanding carved and gilt frame

Condition: Excellent, extremely minor and few…scattered areas of in-paint

Additional Information: Portrait inscribed 'Johannes Wendell, Albany, N. America.'
The envelope on which this is inscribed is post marked 'Amsterdam 1719'. It descended
in the family of origin until 2013. Although Wendell lived in Albany, he was a factor in the
family business in Boston, it is very possible that this picture was painted in the Boston
area. There are a considerable number of portraits extant from Albany dating to the
circa 1718-1745 period by four known limners, whose styles are not equal to the quality
of this portrait. At the time of this writing, we cannot assign an attribution to the colonial
limner’s hand.

Joseph Blackburn, Portrait, Lady in Blue


Joseph Blackburn, Portrait, Lady in Blue, entire view

Attributed to Joseph Blackburn (Active 1752 through 1777)
Oil on canvas
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 lined and ago re-stretched; there is
extremely minor scattered in-painting to cracklature. (Dimensions: 27.75 by 35.75”.)
