Mrs. Nathaniel Parkinson

  • Unidentified, Mrs. Nathaniel Parkinson, late 18th - early 19th century, watercolor on ivory, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Bequest of Mary Elizabeth Spencer, 1999.27.10

This miniature was originally attributed to the artist William Dunlap, but research has since proved this not to be the case. We do not know the life of Mrs. Nathaniel Parkinson, but her cap suggests that this portrait was painted in the first half of the nineteenth century.
