The first woman to become a member of the National Academy of Design, Anne Hall grew up in Connecticut and received her first painting lessons from the miniaturist Alexander Robertson. By 1817, she was publicly exhibiting her charming works, most of which depicted members of her family. Her studies of old master paintings led her to adapt religious compositions to group portraits; these richly colored little paintings attracted a great following and one contemporary observer likened her portraits of children to an "elegant and well-arranged bouquet."
William Beekman Ver Planck; his son, Lewis Irving Ver Planck, until died 1941; John C. Cattus, until 1967
