Description: 
Susan Waters was a successful itinerant portrait artist, a supporter of women's rights and humane treatment of animals, photographer, and deeply religious Quaker. She is best known for her portraits of inhabitants of the Southern Tier of New York done between the years 1843 and 1845, but she was also a successful still-life and animal painter in her later life. This signed and dated portrait is one of three known paintings by Waters of sitters named Kingman. The third is a full-length portrait of a girl named Mary, three years old. There is no solid documentation, however, about the relationship of the three sitters.
