A nicely painted miniature portrait on organic wafer. The sitter is a young gentleman with blue eyes, attired in a white shirt, black tie, jacket and vest. The background is a pleasing shaded blue. Set in a gilt metal case with an unglazed aperture on the reverse.

The cased size of the painting is 2 1/2" by 2". The painting is in excellent condition, with no cracks, bowing, or restoration. The glass on the front has a scratch.

Biographical Note: William Lewis was born in Salem MA in 1788 and worked there until 1821, when he moved to Boston. He continued painting there until 1838, with intermittent trips to Rhode Island and back to Salem. Lewis exhibited at the Boston Athenaeum and at the Boston Mechanics' Association. The date of his death is not known. A number of his miniatures are displayed at the Essex Institute in Salem and the Rhode Island Historical Society in Providence.
