Title Rebecca Blanchard
Description Portrait of Rebecca Blanchard (d.1836) as a middle-aged woman. Rebecca was the first wife of silversmith, Asa Blanchard. She appears to be seated in a chair draped with a shawl or overcoat of some kind. She is wearing a black dress with a white lace neck ruffle and a white bonnet. The painting is mounted in a gilt frame with gesso rosettes and anthemions at each corner.

Frame is possibly made by McIntosh, Jouett's preferred framer. His frames are very fine and distinctive. In American-made frames, few can be associated with a maker so McIntosh frames are special.
