The subject was the fifth child of Henry (or Hendrick) and Cornelia (Dickenson) Remsen and the brother of Henry and George Henry Remsen. The dating of this miniature, which was probably painted in New York, is based on the style of the attire, the technique of execution, and the apparent age of the subject.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
