43.8 U.S. Early Portrait Drawings, Groups, Unidentified

The people 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, before Johnson went to Europe to learn to paint in late 1849, based on evidence including their inscriptions and the appearance of the sitters and style of the drawings. Further research may enable the sitters to be identified. —AM
