Backing: c. engraved "Ann Dunkin / 1790"

Provenance: The subject came to Philadelphia from Colaraine, North Ireland in 1760. She married Robert Dunkin in 1765 in Pine Street Church, Philadelphia, and had two sons, John, a tea merchant who died of malaria in the late 1790s, and Robert Henry, who was a lawyer. This miniature passed to his daughter and from her to the donor by daughter to daughter. This miniature has the same provenance as the sugar bowl by Elias Boudinot, also in the collection of The Newark Museum.
