This large oil on wood panel was purchased by me from direct descendants of the artist and it had never been out of the family.
It was given to one of his two nieces. I have three very small tintypes of the two nieces and their uncle Samuel Lancaster Gerry, American (1839-1891).
One of the daughters of Reuben Gerry (brother of Samuel) was Catherine Gerry. She married Henry Guild Tucker(1883-1930). I purchased it from the estate of Ruth Blanchard Tucker in 2007. She was a daughter of Henry Guild Tucker.
The painting was in a modern inappropriate frame. I had a newer gilded cove frame made for it
