(American, 1840-1909) portrait of Dewitt Clinton Blair, signed l.r. and dated 1894. Some repairs, tears, and restorations. Overall: 4'5"h x 42-1/2"w Sight: 43-1/2"h x 33-1/2"w Note: Born in New Haven, CT, Jeanette Shepperd Harrison came from a distinguished family, counting among her ancestors Roger and Oliver Wolcott. Her first studies took place in her native city under Louis Bail, George Henry Durrie, and Wales Hotchkiss. She set up practice as a portraitist in New Haven, where she was known for painting from life. She moved to New York in 1863 to continue her studies under Henry Augustus Loop, whom she married in 1864. She was elected as an associate of the National Academy of Design in 1873, but never became a full member, missing out by one vote in 1876. Nevertheless, she continued showing at the Academy, where she had first exhibited in 1866 and 1867. Having taken a break until 1871, she rarely missed an annual thereafter until 1905. Her subjects included Mr. and Mrs. Anson P Stokes and three children; Mrs. Roosevelt, mother of the President; Mr. and Mrs. DeWitt Clinton Blair; Mr. and Mrs. J.J. McCook; and Mrs. A.T. Stewart. DeWitt Clinton Blair was the son of New Jersey railroad magnate John Insley Blair.
