Portrait of Porcupina Van Allen, oil on canvas, attributed to John Usher Parsons, (1806-1874). Old frame, circa 1835, Maine origin.
Parsons painted for only 2-4 years in the mid-1830’s and spent the rest of his life as a traveling preacher and evangelist. The scarcity of his work makes his paintings highly prized by collectors. This painting has been professionally restored, relined, with minor inpainting.
