Mezzotint, Print, Jonathan Belcher, Governor of Massachusetts, and New Jersey
Date/Period: 1734


Mezzotint, Print, Jonathan Belcher, Governor of Massachusetts, and New Jersey, entire view

Measurement: Frame: 14" x 18.75"; view: 14.25" x 10.25"

Material: Paper and ink

Condition: Excellent; framed by Perry Hopf

Title R[ichard] Phillips pinx[it] / J. Faber fecit, His Excellency JONATHAN BELCHER,
Esqr, Captain General & Governor in Chief of His Majesty's Provinces of Massachuset's
Bay & New Hampshire in NEW ENGLAND and Vice Admiral of the Same.

Additional Information: Jonathan Belcher (1682-1757), Governor of Massachusetts
from 1730 to 1741, and New Jersey from 1747-1757.

By London printmaker John Faber, Jr. (1695-1756) Belcher's "claimed" family coat-of-
arms (since he came from a Massachusetts native and son of Thomas Belcher, a
prosperous merchant and member of the Massachusetts Council with no aristocratic
pedigree or genealogical tie to the first leaders of Massachusetts) appears in the middle
of the title.

The print is after a half-length portrait painted by Richard Philips (1681-1741),
probably painted during Belcher's 1729-1730 London trip before being installed as royal
governor of Massachusetts. As a Massachusetts governor, it is likely that Belcher was
expected to have his portrait painted; Belcher was not happy when his son, who was at
the time a student in London, engaged Faber to engrave the mezzotint that was
published in London in 1734, which Belcher Sr. was concerned would likely bring
criticism and jealousy.

The portrait depicts Belcher as a model of aristocratic gentility and state authority.
The subject holds his government commission and is positioned with Boston harbor in
the background with a British naval ship firing its cannon in salute. Belcher is wearing a
long periwig with lavish curls, a velvet waistcoat with gold brocade, and a fine lace jabot.
In the lower-right corner, the seal of King George II seems suspended from the hand
holding the commission.
