Mrs. William Loring Andrews

George Augustus Baker Jr.

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 774

This portrait has an unusual oak frame that appears to have been constructed by a cabinetmaker rather than a traditional framemaker. It was likely made to match the furnishings and architectural details of a room in the sitter’s home. Jane Crane Andrews (1840–1930), seen here around the time of her marriage, was later a member of the board of the Woman's Hospital and the National Society of Colonial Dames. Her husband, William, was a trustee of The Metropolitan Museum of Art and organized its library in 1880.
