Sherrill, "Current and Coming," Antiques (September 1975), p. 334 Gordon, Masterpieces of American Folk Art (Lincroft, New Jersey, 1975) Joseph Badger, the son of Stephen and Mary Kettell Badger, was born in Charlestown, Massachusetts, on March 14, 1707/08. The artist and his wife apparently moved to Boston in 1733, making their home near Brattle Church Square until 1763. It was probably there that Badger's abilities and interests in portrait painting were developed through contact with artists like John Smibert and Peter Pelham, who lived in the same general area, or Thomas Johnston, the early teacher of John Greenwood. Badger seems to have spent his entire career in this area of Boston, moving just two years before his death to a house and lot he purchased on Temple Street. The best of Badger's portraits exhibit both charm and decorative interest, qualities that were important to aspiring eighteenth-century Americans. His use of color and the patterned effect sometimes created by the range and intensity of hues reinforced the visual impact of his work.

Frick Art Reference Files, Joseph Badger - Portraits of Children - #123-1 M Exhibited: On loan to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston from May 20, 1915 to September 28, 1915; it is unclear if it was exhibited during that time. Joseph Badger was the son of Stephen Badger (1671-1751) and Mercy Kettrell (1679-1751); he spent his life in the Boston area, advertising in 1731 as a house painter. He married Catharine Smith Fletch and they had eight children, two of which - Joseph Jr (1731-1800) and Jonathan (1736-1799) - became painters. Badger's brother, Daniel Badger (1699-1786) was also a painter but by 1735 had moved to Charleston, South Carolina. Both Joseph and Daniel Badger followed a formula in their portraits of children that align closely with that of Sir Peter Lely and Sir Godfrey Kneller, in which the sitter stands with one hand resting on a hip, the other holding a pet, and typically out of doors with clouds and occasionally a tree in the sitter. This portrait of a child bears very close comparisons to other works done or attributed to Joseph Badger (1707-1765); these include a portrait of Benjamin Badger in the collection of Winterthur Museum (accession # 1956.566); a portrait of James Badger in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (accession # 29.85) and a portrait of a boy (possibly Samuel Flagg), at one time in the collection of the Lancaster (PA) Town Library. All include a black throat ribbon, elongated sash belt and ruffled cuffs. Two individuals by the name of Joseph Briggs lived in Marshfield in the late 19th century: one was born in Massachusetts in 1808 and was living in Marshfield in 1870. The other was born in New York in 1845 and was also living in Marshfield in 1870. It is unclear if either were the prior owner of this portrait.
