This portrait exemplifies Polk’s distinguished style of painting. As Linda Crocker Simmons writes in Charles Peale Polk, A Limner and His Likenesses, “He had been an artist, one of the hard-working few that recorded the appearance and character of the men and women of an era that changed the world…He had achieved an artistic style of his own that was to be recognized finally with a permanent place in the art history of his country.”
