Stephen Van Rensselaer donated this painting to the Society after it was "Resolved that a portrait of the late Hon. Gouverneur Morris decd president of this Society be proecured at the expense thereof" (Minutes, Dec. 6, 1816). Curiously, there is no record of this portrait in Ames's account book, although several other likenesses painted at Van Rensselaer's commission are recorded.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
