Charles Fraser, Henry Trescot, 1821, watercolor on ivory, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase through the Catherine Walden Myer Fund, 1937.7.1
According to Charles Fraser’s account books, he painted “copy of 2 portraits for Mr. H Trescot,” which may mean that the artist copied an existing oil painting of his patron, or made two versions of this miniature. Here, Henry Trescot appears at his ease among leatherbound books, signs of his learning and financial standing.
