Silhouette, Hollow-Cut Profile, Black Gentleman, Watercolor Hair  Detail, Painted Frame

Hollow-cut silhouette of a man in profile to right. Cut paper with hair detail in watercolor; backed with black textile. (We don’t know if the frame is original to the piece; the paper displays strong toning-witness mark conforming to rabbet…it’s just that the back of frame and rabbet display an inconsistent dark surface; let’s assume that the frame is not original, nonetheless a very rare and interesting profile. Frame: 6 x 8"; view: 5 x 3".)

A letter in the collection of The American Folk Art Museum from Justus Dalee to his brother Richard dated May 8, 1843, states in part that "I went to Palmyra, as I wrote John and made $50 in less than 3 weeks, all money.
