Label Text
Edward Greene Malbone was widely admired by both American and British artists. He traveled extensively, working alongside Washington Allston in Boston, and influencing the style of fellow miniaturist Charles Fraser in Charleston. In England, Malbone honed his craft with Lawrence and Thomas Sully. Three portrait miniatures have been assigned to the period of the artist's life in London, this object being one of them. It may be assumed that these miniatures were all copies made for study purposes, since this object appears unfinished.
