Portrait Miniature of American Revolutionary General Henry Knox, Attributed to Sarah Goodridge (American, 1788-1853), after Gilbert Stuart, c. 1820, unsigned, watercolor on ivory, oval, 2 5/8 x 2 1/8 in., housed in a molded composition frame w/ gilt-brass liner. Condition: Small spot on neck.

Literature: See American Portrait Miniatures: The Worcester Art Museum Collection, by Susan Strickler & Marianne Gibson, Worcester, Massachusetts, pp. 108-9. A similar portrait miniature attributed to Gilbert Stuart of General Knox is depicted. The text states that Gilbert "Stuart painted it in his studio in 1820 as a demonstration piece for the young miniature painter Sarah Goodridge...Goodridge painted several miniatures of Stuart himself as well as copies in miniature of a few of his portraits."
