Jeremiah Platt (1744–1811) was a successful New York businessman, a partner with his brother-in-law Samuel Broome in the mercantile firm of Broome, Platt and Company. Mare, a little-known but highly skilled New York portraitist, painted an inventive and refined portrait of Platt, with as much attention paid to the Chippendale-style side chair as to the sitter.
