RANDALL PALMER (1800-1850): PORTRAIT OF SARAH MARIA BOWNE RAYMOND; AND PORTRAIT OF SAMUEL WHITTLESY RAYMOND
Two oil on canvas, both presumably signed ''R. Palmer Pixt'' and dated ''July 25, 1840'' on the reverse (xerox copies attached to the backs of frames), lined. Both 34 1/2 x 28 in., 43 x 36 1/2 in.
Note: Members of the Bowne family lived in Flushing, NY from the 17th through the 20th Centuries. John Bowne expanded the Anglo-Dutch house, now called The Bowne House, in 1669 and again in 1680 as his family expanded. The house is now The Bowne House Historical Society and is the best-preserved example of this vernacular architecture in the country. The family''s genealogical tree is documented in Edith King Wilson''s book Bowne Family of Flushing, Long Island.
