About: This painting may have started as a portrait of Sully's Philadelphia patron Rebecca Gratz, but it is not a typical portrait. Presenting the subject in profile and wearing exotic attire, this painting is more typical of Sully's "fancy pictures," images of beautiful young women, often with literary or imaginary subjects.
