Many American portraitists chose to use textured panels for portraits in the first half of the 19th century. The author examined eight 19th-century portraits on panel in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art dating from between ca. 1810 and ca. 1832 and produced by the following artists: Gilbert Stuart, Wesley Jarvis, James Frothingham, Matthew Harris Jouett, Samuel Lovett Waldo, and the partnership of Waldo and William Jewett. The author relates the results of her technical analyses of these portraits and then focuses more closely on the panels of Gilbert Stuart, including those found in other collections.
