Catherine Bohlen (probably 1830-?)

Catherine Bohlen, here, is the 21 year old daughter of Jane G and John Bohlen, a Philadelphia merchant born in Germany. Seated in profile, the homely yet imposing sitter wears a blue brocade dress with lace pelerine and cameo at her corsage and an ermine stole draped over her shoulders, her hair in a Victorian loop. Original 1850. Collection of Yale.
Completed February 2012. Sold.
