Description:Three-quarter length portrait of a clean-shaven brown-haired young man seated on a red patterned plush settee. He is looking forward and has his left arm draped over the back of the settee so that only the cuff of his black coat and his left hand are visible. He is wearing a cream-colored vest with covered buttons under the open coat, and under that he wears a high collared white shirt banded with a black tie. There appears to be a stickpin on his shirt.
History of Work:Painted in Mass.
Notes:Lived in Braintree and Boston about 1770 to 1820. Maybe these three family portraits were painted at the same time before Caleb died.
