Mrs. Walter Clarke and Her Son Marvia H. Clarke


Description Provenance Credit
Description This locket contains two portrait miniatures, one of Mrs. Walter Clarke and the other of her infant son, Marvia H. Clarke, who holds a rattle. Mrs. Clarke appears bust-length with brown hair, wearing a wine red dress. The child is seated wearing a white dress, holding a rattle and surrounded by clouds. The clouds might indicate that this is a posthumous portrait. From the sitter's center-parted hair style and off the shoulder dress the miniature appears to date from ca. 1840.
Provenance Abraham Jay Fink, Baltimore; A. J. Fink Foundation Inc., Baltimore; given to Walters Art Museum, 1963.
Credit Gift of the A. Jay Fink Foundation, Inc., Baltimore, in memory of Abraham Jay Fink, 1963
