Description: 
Deborah Goldsmith, born in Madison County, New York, had a brief but successful career as an itinerant portrait painter. She traveled to neighboring counties executing likenesses for friends and acquaintances. It is not known if she had any professional training, but her sketch books point to her familiarity with the decorative idioms and pictorial clichés popular among schoolgirls and other amateur artists of the period. Goldsmith died at age 27, and her family preserved her friendship albums, paintings, worktable, and supplies.
