Emanuel Gottlieb Leutze, James Barnett Dodson, 1837, watercolor on ivory, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase, 1982.98.2
James Barnett Dodson was born in Virginia, and married Henrietta Waugh four years after this miniature was painted. On the original backing paper for his miniature, the artist made a test drawing of Dodson, probably before committing his pencil to the more unforgiving ivory surface.
