Signed Lower Right Unknown Sitter,
September 22, 1834 Oil on Canvas,
back-mark: Prepared by Edward Deciliux / New York

John Bradley, Portrait of Seated Gentleman Holding Scroll,

The subject holds an inscribed scroll which is mostly iledgeable, we can read: Captain Ethelbert / September 22, 1834 / Fifth Company...otherwise illegible. John Bradley was active in the New York City area 1832-1847, works from the 1830s depict residents of Staten Island then known as Richmond Island. Bradley, a portrait and miniature painter is listed in city directories as working in the area which became Houston Street. Most of his paintings including this portrait are signed "I. Bradley" [or John Bradley]. A large tear on the subject's chest was restored, otherwise very good with only typical and minor touches. The stretcher is original with the frame being vintage.
