John Henry Brown, Mrs. John Jordan, Jr., 1848, watercolor on ivory, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase through the Catherine Walden Myer Fund, 1952.5.3
We know nothing about this woman, who appears here in a simple dress of sheer fabric, with a small locket at her throat. The locket may contain a miniature, as artists during the nineteenth century often showed their sitters wearing a token similar to the one being painted.
Mrs. John Jordan, Jr.
