Not on view

Moses Gill (1733-1800), a Boston hardware merchant (later governor of Massachusetts), probably commissioned this portrait of himself as a wedding gift for his wife, Sarah Prince. In 1764, Gill went to Copley again for oil portraits of himself and Sarah (both Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design, Providence).
