Raphaelle Peale, Portrait of a Gentleman, ca. 1805, watercolor on ivory, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase, 1950.4.6
This man’s elegantly knotted tie clearly shows Raphaelle Peale’s deft brushwork. Although we do not know who the sitter was, he was a man “of means” who could afford fine clothes and the services of one of America’s leading miniaturists.
