Beautifully painted, viewed with careful observation, and with an awareness of the importance of accurate and pleasing appearance, as well as fine costume, when painting a portrait. The sitters are identified in pencil on the reverse and signed as painted by J.G. Adamson on September 19, 184(5?). The notation of a street in Brigate indicates a probable English origin and shows us how improbale such an origin can sometimes appear to be. There are sometimes clear differences between English and American folk art, and at other times such as this, the two are indistinguishable. Framed as pairs in appropriate reproduction frames and conservation mounted. Each pair framed measures 9 3/8 x 7 7/8 inches. Each drawing unframed is approximately 2 1/2 x 4 inches in size.
