The portrait of Israel Phillips faintly inscribed and dated, possibly by the artist, "Mrs. R.H. Bascom ---- Bernardston 1842," and in a later hand "Israel Phillips of Greenfield sketched by Mrs. Ruth Bascom of Bernardston June 1842" in pencil on the reverse; the other three portraits also with identifying inscriptions on the backboards. Pastel with graphite on paper, the portrait of Rossy Phillips with segments of gold foil applied to her necklace, the first three portraits measuring 19 x 14, the portrait of Rossy Phillips measures 18 x 13 in., all in original wood frames. Condition: Foxing, the portrait of Mercy B. Phillips was extended by the artist with a strip of paper. Provenance: Descended through the family of the sitters. Note: Israel Phillips was born in Oxford, Worcester County, Massachusetts on April 7, 1771. He married Mercy Bascom, born Feb. 7, 1774, in Gill, Massachusetts, on Nov. 6, 1794, and together they had eleven children. Their youngest child, a son named Simon Cady Phillips, was born August 8, 1819 in Greenfield, Massachusetts. He married Rossy Sophia Ballard on January 27, 1847, and they resided in Gill, Massachusetts. The 1880 census lists Simon C. Phillips age as 60, was a widower, (his wife Rossy died November 9, 1874). His occupation was a carpenter. The artist Ruth Henshaw Bascom was related by marriage to the older woman portrayed here, Mercy Bascom Phillips. Mercy was the older sister of Ruth's second husband, Ezekiel Lysander Bascom. Ruth Bascom kept an extensive diary, which she maintained from 1789 through 1846. References to the portraits of Israel, Mercy, and Simon Phillips are found in a diary dated for June 1842, and were done June 1, 3, and 7. The diaries Ruth Bascom kept are now archived at the American Antiquarian Society, Manuscripts Department, Worcester, Massachusetts. It is not known when the likeness of Rossy was done. She was not married to Simon in 1842, and would not be until five years later on January 27, 1847 .

        Est: $20,000 - $30,000

        painted 1832; in a period frame. Charles is the brother of Helen Mann Rugg (Lot 19); Bascom's journal records his image as having been taken on several dates in 1832. The back of the portrait is inscribed Charles in pencil along the top of his head and the bottom of his shoulder, most likely by Mrs. Bascom herself.
