Mrs. Samuel Wilson

Artist: Officer, Thomas
Date: 1838

The severity of Mrs. Wilson's dress style and hairdo have been countered by the attempt at an informal pose. However, the position of her left arm remains awkward. Like other artists working in the 1830s, Officer had a tendency to use heavy pigmentation.
