Gift of Mr. and Mrs. C. S. Mott, 2005.176
C.S. (Charles Stewart) Mott collected art based on what he enjoyed. While many times that meant he sought out authentic works of art, other times he looked for replicas that suited his own personal collecting interests. This occasionally meant seeking out replicas of works or styles of art that interested him. Portraits like this one were a common collecting milieu for C.S. Mott. This portrait is said to be "after" George Romney.Image Permissions
