Mrs. James Duane (1738-1821) by Ralph Earl, 1787. Via the New York Historical Society.
“Mary Livingston, the daughter of Robert Livingston, Jr., the third Lord of Livingston Manor, was married to James Duane on October 21, 1759. This portrait, although reversed, is virtually identical to Earl’s painting of Mrs. Alexander Hamilton, now in the Museum of the City of New York. Both portraits were apparently completed while Earl was in debtor’s prison in New York.”
Is anyone else totally in love with the idea of Ralph Earl painting this amazing portrait from Debtor’s Prison?

Look at the little arrows through their buns <3
These were definitely a fad in the early part of the 19th century- I love them!
“Morticia Addams could not have dreamed of a more appropriate comb. This mantilla spiderweb was designed by Clément Joyard, c. 1910. He, along with Bonaz, Léon Arbez-Carme, and Marius Camet, were among the famous designers who had their combs made in the celluloid factories of France’s Oyonnax Valley.”
