Cataloguing

Provenance

Descended in the Winniatt family;

Private collection;

Martin J. Conlon American Antiques, Providence, Rhode Island.

Catalogue Note

The Winniatt family were likely painted near their hometown of Gravesend, England, given that the father, Richard, died in Bristol, and John and Lowisa would not have emigrated to the United States independently as children. John Winniatt or the daughter of Lowisa, probably brought these portraits to Boston as family heirlooms in the second half of the 19th century.
