The portrait appears consistent in the style of similar American portrait artists of the time. The name Bushnell is unidentified, however the style of the painting and the name may point to it having been painted by Sarah Bushnell Perkins (American, 1771–1831) or in tribute to her. Canvas 19" x 15", frame 28" x 24". Excellent maple stained frame. Canvas shows significant craquelure.
