Portrait Of Alabama Governor Andrew Moore
Portrait of Alabama Governor Andrew Moore
Oil on canvas, signed l.r. and inscribed Montgomery, Ala; 30 x 25 in.
This portrait of Governor Andrew Moore (1807-1873), serving in that capacity from 1857-1861, was executed by ''Mamie'' Lockett (1859-1952), probably in the late 19th century and as a copy of the portrait by Nicola Marschall (1829-1917). Marschall was a portrait painter who also designed the first Confederate Flag, and he also worked with Lockett's grandfather.
Governor Moore was instrumental in organizing the Confederate States of America in Mongomery, February 1861. His relationship with the Lockett family is well documented, as the artist's grandmother, Mrs. Napoleon Lockett, sewed the original Confederate flag designed by Marshall in Marion.
Very light and scattered inpainting along sitter's face. One 2'' dia. circular area of inpainting left center background.
