Portrait of a Gentleman

Luce Center Label

Although we do not know who this man was, his elegantly knotted tie and the miniature he wears at his throat suggest he was a man of some means, perhaps a successful merchant like Howes Goldsborough, also painted by James Peale around this time [see 1948.5.1].
