Francesco Bartolozzi (1727-1815) was an Italian engraver, whose most productive period was spent in
London; founder of Royal Academy of Arts.
Swiss artist Angelica Kauffmann (1741-1807), moved to London in 1766 and was one of two women
artists who helped found the Royal Academy; Kauffmann produced several Shakespeare-themed
paintings, large and small, many of which were circulated widely as prints.

Antique Sampler: Martha Barron Pickering,
Portsmouth, New Hampshire, 1828
Wrought by Miss. Martha Barron Pickering,
Aged 11 Years, May 27th, 1828


Antique Sampler: Martha Barron Pickering, 
Portsmouth, New Hampshire, 1828

Worked with silk threads and silk floss on linen The stylistic format of Martha Pickering’s sampler-featuring a distinctive birdhouse and pyramid-shaped trees-was employed in Portsmouth as early as 1810 and continued to be favored until 1840. Works from this group include the month, day, and year that the sampler was embroidered. A picket fence attaches the house to barn; a single bird is usually perched on the gatepost, and a birdhouse (with chimney) is mounted on a pole elevated above the barns roof; there is a bird perched on the roofs peak. Anotherschool tradition is the use of trees, they are always wrought in odd numbers of one, three, or five, depending on available space based on the width of the sampler; foliage is embroidered cross-stitches. Depicted in this work is a bird atop the center tree. This needlework sampler remains in superb original condition and is archivally mounted within an attractive modern frame.

Antique Sampler, Martha Congdon, 1822, Aged 13 New England…clean and bright, silk on linen



Frequently samplers remain unfinished as is the case with Martha’s work; it is always a mystery but it often, as in this case, results in the work surviving in excellent condition. We did check death records to see if Martha might have died in 1822 or shortly thereafter but couldn't find anything. We have attributed this sampler to New Hampshire based on the similarity in design to other documented samplers from New Hampshire (including another that we know featuring a very similar yellow house and overall composition). There were also several Congdon families living in the state at the time the sampler was made. However, the only specific references we could find to Martha Congdon born in the right year were t girls from Rhode Island, Connecticut and Vermont. So, "New England" would be very safe or even "Northern New England" as we believe a New Hampshire or Vermont origin is more likely than Connecticut or Rhode Island.

New England Schoolgirl Floral Embroidery, Vacant Family Record
Anonymous, Early 19th-Century,
Silk on silk


 New England Schoolgirl Floral Embroidery, Vacant Family Record

Nested birds, birds perched on trees above figures flanked by trees; a cenotaph-like urn festooned with ribbon and bowknots centered by dog and bird…these vignettes centering vacant center…all within an elaborate floral border. Unfortunately, the center section worked in pencil remains unfinished. There are minor losses to border not effecting embroidery; toning, and stains. There is minor thread loss limited to center. The work is mounted within an appropriate non-period frame. With some work it is likely that the penciled record may be identified; appears to be a family named Perry.

Embroidery After Thomas Lawrence’s 1794 Portrait of Sarah Goodin Barrett Moulton, AKA Pinkie, entire view

The original portrait hangs in the permanent collection of the Huntington Library at San Marino, California.
The painting is an elegant depiction of Sarah Moulton, who sat for the painting at about eleven years of
age. Sarah was born on 22 March 1783, in Little River, St. James, Jamaica…the only daughter and eldest
child of Charles Moulton, and his wife Elizabeth. Sarah was baptized 29 May 1783, bearing the names
Sarah Goodin Barrett in honor of her aunt, Sarah Goodin Barrett, who died as an infant in 1781. She was a
descendant of Hersey Barrett, who had arrived in Jamaica in 1655 with Sir William Penn; by 1783, the
Barrett’s were wealthy landowners, slave owners, and exporters of sugar cane and rum. Within the family
she was known as Pinkie or Pinkey.

By the time Sarah was six, her father had left the family, her mother was left to raise the children, Sarah
and her brothers Edward (1785–1857) and Samuel (1787–1837), with the help of her relatives. In
September 1792, Sarah and her brothers sailed to England for a better education. Sarah was sent to Mrs.
Fenwick's school at Flint House, Greenwich, along with other children from Jamaican colonial families. On
16 November 1793 Sarah's grandmother, Judith Barrett, wrote from Jamaica to her niece Elizabeth Barrett
Williams, then living on Richmond Hill in Surrey, asking her to commission a portrait of 'my dear little Pinkey
… as I cannot gratify my self [sic] with the Original, I must beg the favour of you to have her picture drawn
at full length by one of the best Masters, in an easy Careless attitude'.
Sarah probably began sitting for
Lawrence, painter-in-ordinary to George III, at his studio in Old Bond Street soon after the receipt of this
letter on 11 February 1794.

One year later, on 23 April 1795, Sarah died at Greenwich, aged 12. A letter from her grandmother, dated 6
November 1794, mentions her recent recovery from a cough, which may have contributed to her death.
She was buried on 30 April 1795 in the doctor's vault under the parish church of St Alfege, Greenwich.

Her portrait by Lawrence was displayed in the Royal Academy exhibition of 1795, which opened the day
after her burial. The picture remained in the family's possession until 1910.
