Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Bust-length portrait of a dark haired young man, looking to the observer. He wears a navy blue coat with white bottons, white vest and white muslin ruffled jabot. Ramage worked mainly in New York, from the late 1770s and quickly became the leading portrait-miniaturist in that city. Among his most distinguished sitters were George Washington and George Clinton, govenor of New York. His works are often framed with characteristic scalloped shaped and engraved housings. Ramage's work desk with tools and artist samples can be found at the New York Historical Society.
