In early 2017, our fourth floor will be transformed into a new destination for historical education and innovation. During the current renovation, objects from our permanent collection are on view throughout the Museum.
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.
Gift of Mrs. Edward Rutledge
