Portrait of a Woman


Description Provenance Credit
Description Small portraits of those to whom one was connected by family, friendship, or political allegiance were treasured first as likenesses and second as works of art. Just as today, a "good" photo of someone is one that "looks like" the person. They were often given as gifts. They could be hung in a decorative arrangement or kept in a cabinet and taken out to be contemplated. Some were worn as pendants.
Provenance Abraham Jay Fink, Baltimore [no. A-147]; A. Jay Fink Foundation, Inc., Baltimore, 1963, by bequest; Walters Art Museum, 1963, by gift.
Credit Gift of the A. Jay Fink Foundation, Inc., in memory of Abraham Jay Fink, 1963
