Attributed to Deacon Robert Peckham (1785-1877)
PORTRAIT OF THE PRATT FAMILY OF ESSEX, CONNECTICUT
Painted in 1828; the portrait depicts the Pratt family of Essex, Connecticut: father, Julius Pratt (1791-1869), his wife, Lydia DeWolf Pratt (1796-1862), their daughter, Harriet Melinda Pratt (1818-1850), their son, Julius Howard Pratt (1821-1909) and their son William A. Pratt (b. 1845). William was painted secondarily likely by the Connecticut artist George C. Baldwin (abt. 1818-1879). Julius Pratt and Lydia DeWolf Pratt married on January 8, 1817.

The lot is accompanied by a history of the Pratt family by Julius Howard Pratt, entitled Reminiscences: Personal and Otherwise, printed privately in 1910. Where the portrait is used as a frontispiece. The subjects are identified as: the father, Julius Pratt (1791-1869), his wife, Lydia DeWolf Pratt (1796-1862), their daughter, Harriet Melinda Pratt (1818-1850), their son, Julius Howard Pratt (1821-1909) and William A. Pratt (b. 1845). William was later added, likely by the obscure Connecticut artist George C. Baldwin (abt. 1818-1879). (2 pieces).
