label: on stretcher: "Anthony Bleecker / Son of Anthony Lispenard Bleecker / was born in the City of New York / October 27th, 1770, died March 13th, 1827 by Jarvis"
The subject of this painting was the son of Anthony Lispenard and Mary (Noel) Bleecker, and grew up on the family estate, now marked by Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village. He was one of the founders of the New-York Historical Society. At one time the painting was attributed on stylistic grounds to John Wesley Jarvis; it is now believed to be a copy--perhaps executed as late as 1845--of the original by Dunlap in the New York Society Library.
