Watercolor on paper of Dr. John Lyons attributed to Rufus Porter



Watercolor on paper by Rufus Porter of Dr. John Lyons of Southborough, Mass. circa 1835--40.

This portrait has all the attributes of a Rufus Porter miniature portrait.  Please see http://www.rufusportermuseum.org/#!about1/c13t8, an article posted on the Rufus Porter Museum web site.

 

The outer frame is not original.  I believe it to be from the 1920's.  I believe the inner oval surround to be original as is the chamfered backboard with label on the back stating:

"Dr. John Lyon of ....................Mass

David?...................................1844

Southborough.....lived to?  age... 84

Married?...................... Diana ...god

of Northborough?  

                                                   Mass"              "
