Eighteenth Century Portrait, Boy in Blue
Anonymous, Circa 1750
A handsome and agreeable lad within porthole format, mounted in carved period frame - SOLD


Antique Portrait of a Boy in Blue, Anonymous, Circa 1750, close up view
Handsome half-length portrait of an adolescent boy in a light blue jacket and waistcoat, with delicately rendered cotton cuffs and collar. His competently-painted hand holds a small book and the other is tucked into his waistcoat, giving him a mature and scholarly air. Children in the early to mid-eighteenth century were dressed and expected to behave as miniature adults, and education was a priority for middle and upper-class families. Literacy was necessary among the children of wealthy families, and that our young man’s family would commission a portrait of their son at such an early age shows fondness but also an expectation of greatness. Very minor restoration commensurate with age; re-stretched and lined.

JUSTUS DALEE (1793 to 1878), Full Length Portrait, Girl in Pink Dress
Delineated in Palmyra, March, 1843
Palmyra, New York, entire view

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.

Hollander, Ed American Radiance, The Ralph Esmerian Gift to The American Folk Art Museum (New York: American Folk Art Museum and Abrams, 2001), p. 73.
