Mrs. Leonard Rogers (ca. 1768-?)
Oil on canvas
Overall: 24 x 21 1/4 in. ( 61 x 54 cm )
Elizabeth Gatfield was the wife of Leonard Rogers of New York. Judging by the style of the dress and hat she wears, her portrait must have been painted about 1785-90. The painting, a gift to the Society from the subject's great-great-grandson, represents a survival of the provincial Georgian-rococo style in the aftermath of the Revolutionary War.
Gift of John A. Thompson
