Mrs. Samuel Cutts

Joseph Blackburn American

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 717

For the pendant to his portrait of Samuel Cutts (1979.196.1), Blackburn demonstrated his expertise as a drapery painter. The lace-trimmed gown of silk damask was not Mrs. Cutts’s own but was copied from a British print of the latest fashion.
