Gift of Edith A. Bagg in memory of her mother, Matilda McLean Lintz Bagg
In 1845 James Herring sent a "Portrait of a Gentleman" and a "Portrait of a Lady" to the National Academy of Design exhibition, and these were listed as owned by William Sneckner (Sneckner was the maiden name of William Lintz's wife). The Society's portraits of Mr. and Mrs. Lintz were probably these two portraits.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
