The subject, the son of John Hermans Knickerbacker (1723-1803), was a member of the New York state legislature from Schaghticoke, Rensselaer County, New York, and the owner of an extensive estate. This portrait, a gift to the Society from his grandson, may be a copy of a portrait of the subject by the French artist Pierre Paul Prud'hon (1758-1823) at the Musée Carnavalet in Paris. The identification of the subject is based on family tradition. Test for website.
