45.6 U.S. Later Portrait Drawings, Children and Adolescents, Unidentified
The children and adolescents in these portraits have not yet been identified by name. However, the drawings are known or believed to have been done in the United States, after Johnson returned from Europe in late 1855, based on factors including their inscribed dates and the appearance of the sitters and style of the drawings when images are available. —AM
