Unidentified, Portrait of a Gentleman, ca. 1835, watercolor, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Mrs. Henry L. Milmore, 1950.4.36
In this miniature the well-groomed gentleman wears a high-collared coat, black cravat (worn as a scarf around the neck), and a white shirt secured by a long pin. These details also suggest the gentleman’s position in society, which allowed him to afford new styles in fashion.
