    Description

    John Quincy Adams: Important Miniature Portrait on Ivory by Noted Artist Edward Dalton Marchant. Marchant (1806-1887) painted a well-known image of Andrew Jackson in 1840, later copied by James Tooley, Jr. for a miniature now in the National Portrait Gallery. He also painted a famous pose of Lincoln, the first to present him as the Emancipator, which was widely reproduced in the 1864 election and now hangs in the Union League Club of Philadelphia. The present painting is presented nicely under glass in a vintage, but probably not original, frame, with old label on reverse in what appears to be a 19th century ink handwriting. "John Quincy Adams, President U.S.A., painted on ivory by Marchant, 1835." It is signed "Marchant" above the right shoulder in the field. The painting is in perfect condition, and measures 2.25" x 3". Framed to 3.75" x 5".
