Catalogue Note

Deacon Robert Peckham (1785-1877) painted Sally Puffer Sanderson in a patterned blue dress and holding a rose.  The wheeled basket-like carriage behind her is painted a vivid yellow with green trim, with a red and green plaid blanket.  This artist is known for portraying architectural details within his portraits such as the fireplace shown here with polished brass andirons.  A portrait of the sitter's mother is also known to have been painted by Peckham. For a similar portrait of children see Peckham's Hobby Horse, which was exhibited in Washington, D.C. at The National Gallery of Art, May 27 - October 8, 2012.
