Description
Portrait of Andrew Jackson by William Stewart Watson (Scottish, 1800-1870), signed lower right " Stewart Watson/Pinxt 1836". Watson is believed to have painted in both America and Europe for several years before settling in Edinburgh. He is primarily known for his portraits, including miniatures, and paintings of historical subjects. Condition - Professionally conserved in 2001. Blacklighting reveals inpainting/restoration to areas around eyes, nose, and forehead. A couple of areas flouresce in right hairline area, one small area flouresces in chest area and one to background. Conservation report available to sucessful bidder. Sight - 27 1/4" Height x 23 1/4" Width. Framed - 34 1/4" Height x 31" Width. Provenance - By family oral tradition, a gift from President Jackson to Colonel Albert James Pickett(1810-1858) when Pickett visited Jackson at The Hermitage in 1837. The painting was given to his daughter Mary Pickett Harris and descended through her family. The great grandchild of Mary Pickett Harris consigned the portrait with Christies in 2001 where the present consignor acquired the portrait. Albert Pickett was a prominent writer and Alabama historian who was influential in Alabama politics during the second quarter of the 19th century. Pickett was a Jacksonian Democrat who was instrumental in organizing a counter response to a group of Alabama anti-Jackson States Rights legislators who were successful in 1835 in endorsing Judge Hugh White of TN for President over Martin Van Buren. President Jackson presented Pickett with this portrait as a result of his loyalty.
