label: on back of frame: "Gov. George Clinton by Ezra Ames / Property of John Quincy Adams / Ambassador to Court of St. James"
It is possible that this portrait was painted by an English rather than an American artist. The subject is not Governor Clinton, as the old label states, nor is the portrait the work of Ezra Ames. It is not known whether or not it once belonged to John Quincy Adams.
Gift of the Heirs of Walter Jennings
