Nathaniel Rogers, Portrait of a Gentleman, ca. 1825, watercolor on ivory, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase through the Catherine Walden Myer Fund, 1953.10.1
This miniature is typical of Rogers’s early work, employing the oval format he would later abandon in favor of rectangular works destined for display in small hinged cases or frames. The sitter is shown in the costume of a nineteenth-century “dandy,” with a high, pointed collar and elegant velvet lapels.
