De Peyster Girl, with a Lamb
Oil on canvas
Overall: 50 1/4 x 41 in. ( 127.6 x 104.1 cm )
This daughter of Abraham, Jr., and Margareta (Van Cortlandt) De Peyster is either Catharine (1724-1804) or Margareta (1728-80). The former became Mrs. John Livingston, and latter, Mrs. William Axtell. The artist relied heavily on English mezzotints for his models, as did many colonial painters of the first half of the 18th century.
