Early Nineteenth Century Gentleman
Depicted with a Sky Background

American
dated 1822
by Carl Weinedel
(ca. 1794-1845)

(Signed, lower left, "Weinedel / 1822".)

2 x 2 1/2 inches (sight)

watercolor on ivory; housed under glass in a gold case

It is believed that notes likely exist on the portrait's
backing paper, perhaps identifying the subject or the location of
where he was painted, but the case's glass lens is burnished in place
with gold, making it difficult to open without causing damage.
