Portrait Miniature of a Gentleman, Reportedly a Self-portrait of the Artist

Biography   James Ellsworth


Silhouettist, portrait, and miniature painter, James Sanford Ellsworth was born in Windsor, Connecticut in 1802.  Depicting Massachusetts and Connecticut farmers and their families, the artist painted miniature watercolor portraits on paper, and all but seven of them are profiles.  Only two of the full-face miniatures show the entire figure.  Many of his sitters are sitting on chairs resembling doll furniture, and often his faces are framed by scalloped clouds, which gives them the appearance of floating in air.  He painted images of at least sixty-four children.  His signature appears with thirteen variations.  Sometimes he used initials, and occasionally he wrote the word "Painter" after his signature.
