John Singleton Copley achieved his reputation as the greatest portraitist of the colonial era through his ability to create pleasing likenesses of Boston's elite. This portrait of Abigail Pickman Gardiner (1733–1780), wife of the wealthy landowner and physician Sylvester Gardiner, demonstrates Copley's talent for capturing both the factual appearance (note, in particular, his naturalistic handling of the hands and drapery folds) and the social pretensions of his sitter. Mrs. Gardiner wears an...

In this case, he used European models for the setting and figure, and then adapted the iconography for an American subject. Standing in the classical pose of an orator (with arm extended), Washington appears in formal civilian clothing, but holds a sword that recalls his military achievements and suggests the might of his presidency....
