EARLY SILK ON SILK MEMORIAL

#3018

This work, a memorial made in honor of Mrs. Jennet Mitchell, the wife of Mr. Cushing Mitchell, who died on February 25, 1774, when she was 26 years old. The plinth bears the inscription that "Life is long, which answers life's great end". Standing to the left of the plinth under a weeping willow tree are four mourners, a husband and three children. To the right of the willow tree, a graveyard bears stones which memorialize earlier members of the family. The church behind the graveyard is architecturally detailed and carefully constructed and appropriate to the era. In remarkably good condition, particularly for its age. 17 1/2" x 13 1/4"
