Rare William Jennys Silhouette


This is a rare artist. Groce says, "Portrait painter working in and around New Milford (Conn.) in mid-1790's and at NYC in 1797-98. After 1800 he moved northward along the Connecticut Valley into Central Massachusetts and Vermont and eastward to Portsmouth (NH). Not in McKechnie, Carrick, Harper, or Jackson.


Silhouette of Young Lady, cut paper with cloth background, stamped "W. Jennys" in black painted frame, 5" x 4-1/2". From Conestoga Auction Company


Does anyone own another Jennys?
