Attributed to Joseph Greenleaf Cole (American, 1806-1858)
Portrait of Hon. Samuel Hale of New Hampshire. Patch applied to l.l. canvas signed "Joseph G. Cole 1828." The artist, subject, and date identified on reverse inscriptions as Hon. Samuel Hale of New Hampshire, 1828. Oil on canvas, 32 1/2 x 24 1/2 in., in a contemporary molded giltwood frame. Condition: Relined, retouch.
Fairly unobtrusive retouch. Much of the upper background has been repainted, also several areas on face and body, there were likely a couple tears in the canvas one going horizontally through the face, another through his jacket on the lower central area.
