The original portrait on which this copy was based was probably painted about 1760-65, most likely in New York. According to family tradition the original was damaged by bayonets during the Revolution, and sometime thereafter this copy was made. The subject is shown against a background that represents his home, Roxborough, which was located on what is now the corner of 18th Street and Park Avenue South.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
