Description This portrait by Miller depicts Sarah Malvina Allen (September 15, 1824-December 16, 1854) who married William Herald Heald, a prominent Baltimore businessman, in 1844. It is a companion piece to Miller's portrait of her husband (WAM 37.2509). Probably as a result of the business ties between his brothers Decatur and Columbus and the Healds, Miller executed a number of portraits of members of the Heald family.
Provenance Mrs. William Newland Day [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1974, by gift.
