Catalogue Note

According to Charles Coleman Sellers, "Thomas Russell, born at Birmingham, England, in 1741, came to America in 1764, settling in Cecil C., Md., at North East Forge, near Charlestown... Coming of a family of British ironmasters, he was a key figure in the transplanting to America of that industry, so vitally important in the movement toward revolution and independence. With Lawrence Washington and other prominent men who doubtless depended on Russell's technical knowledge, he was one of the organizers of the Pricipio Iron Co... Ann, daughter of Samuel and Mary Thomas, was married, after the death of her first husband, Thomas Russell, to Daniel Sheridine. This portrait, retained in her own home, carries the detail of the wreath of roses, lacking in that sent to England" (Portraits and Miniatures by Charles Willson Peale, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1952, pp. 188-89).

Catalogue Note

From Peter Colman Sellers, Portraits and Miniatures by Charles Willson Peale:

"Jane Hunter was born Jan. 10, 1768, married Maskell Ewing, Oct. 1787 and died Feb. 10. 1831. She was the daughter of James Hunter (1726-1796), a Scottish merchant who settled in Philadelphia. In 1757 he had purchased a farm, \“Woodstock,\” in Delaware Co., at what is now Villanova, which is still held in the family. Here Maskell and Jane Ewing moved from Trenton in 1805.\”

When Sellers published his book in 1952, he noted that Mrs. Robert E. Brooke of Philadelphia, a descendant, owned both the portrait of Mr. and Mrs. Ewing.

The two portraits were separated in an auction in 1992. The companion portrait of her husband, Maskell Ewing is now in the collection of the Sewell Biggs Museum of Art in Dover Delaware.
