More About this Item


Description: Annie L. Colladay Braidwood (American/Pennsylvania, mid-19th c.), "Portrait of Andrew Jackson", 1866, oil on canvas, signed, inscribed "From a Portrait from life / by E.D Marchant at New Orleans / in 1839", dated and "L. Hausz, Philadelphia" stencil en verso, 24 1/4 in. x 20 in., framed with plaque. Provenance: Private Collection, Arkansas; Hammer Galleries, New York; Collection of Sam Wyly, Dallas, TX, Private Collection, New Orleans. Note: As noted en verso of the canvas, this portrait of Andrew Jackson was based on a well-known portrait drawn from life of the illustrious Jackson by Edward Dalton Marchant, a former student of Gilbert Stuart. The famous portrait was completed by Marchant in early 1840, upon the occasion of New Orleans hosting a Silver Jubilee for Jackson celebrating his 1815 victory over the British in the Battle of New Orleans. The Marchant portrait was re-discovered in the mid-1990s at the Union League of Philadelphia, after decades spent misattributed to other artists or listed as artist unknown. The artist of the work offered here, Annie Colladay Braidwood graduated from the School of Design for Women in Philadelphia (now Moore College of Art) and studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. In 1865, she married the principal of the School of Design for Women, Thomas W. Braidwood. One year later, she painted this portrait of Jackson, seventh president of the United States, after the well-known image by Marchant. She perhaps may have seen the original portrait on display in Philadelphia or utilized one of the many miniatures and engravings already completed by other artists after the famous likeness as her inspiration. Braidwood’s skill as a copyist is evident, although her depiction of Jackson softens the features and presents a more approachable, animated visage. As part of a donation on behalf of the School of Design for Women in 1867 to a State Gallery of Art, this painting was placed in the new library room of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
