Unidentified, Reverend John F. Pingry, 1830s, pencil on paper, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Bequest of Mary Elizabeth Spencer, 1999.27.73
The man depicted in this portrait may be the father of John Pingry, who founded a preparatory school for boys in Elizabeth, New Jersey, in 1861. The sitter appears in profile, with his gaze toward the portrait of his wife, Mrs. Pingry, which is also in this collection. The unknown artist captured Pingry’s strong features and alert expression.
