Portrait of a Gentleman

Alfred Thomas Agate American

Not on view

The unusual round shape of this portrait suggests that Agate painted it specifically for its distinctive watchcase-style case. The case bears the mark of Wilmarth, Moffat and Curtis, jewelers and watchmakers who operated in New York City from 1830 to 1834.
