SC Silhouette of a Southern Gentleman
by Samuel Metford, ca. 1840
(1810 - 1890)
8 x 6 inches (sight). Signed lower right: "Sam'l Metford fecit, Hamburg, SC."
Expertly rendered man with hat, representative of Metford's best work with an embellished shirt collar in Chinese white and a finely rendered hand drawn charcoal background. Works with a designated location, especially a Southern location, are quite rare.
