Portrait of Mrs. Converse
Gift of Peter N. Heydon
An entertainer, shown larger in scale than everyone and everything else in the image, sits in the center of the composition. Tied to the strings he holds in his hand are two monkeys and a goat. The monkeys sit atop poles, and are entertaining the people around. The women hold bell-like objects on strings. Are these meant to be placed on the goat's neck? A white square is shown below the entertainer--probably representing a mattress. The sun's rays are shown in organe on the horizon, outlining the semi-circular brown mound framing the scene taking place in the foreground. Vegetation and greenery are shown on the left and right.

This elegant self-portrait depicts a half-length figure of a man in three-quarters profile with his left arm resting on a stone ledge. The somber colors of his garb, consisting of a white shirt with a dark robe, is offset by luxurious details: the fur collar of his robe, the black ribbon and gold chain around his neck, the embroidered collar and cuffs of his shirt, and the three rings on his right hand. Two pink carnations appear on the ledge before him.
