American, fl. 1825-1836 Portrait of a Young Girl with a Coral Necklace, 1826
Inscribed No. 56, signed R. Rowley and dated 1826 on the reverse Oil on canvas 26 x 21 3/4 inches Little is known of the life of Reuben Rowley, an itinerant portrait and miniature painter who lived in the vicinity of Ithaca and worked in Chenango and Susquehanna Valley towns in New York State in the mid-1820s. He was in Albany in 1832, where he is believed to have taught Philip Hewin. He moved on to Boston, remaining until 1838, exhibiting portraits and still life paintings at the Athenaeum. Few examples of Rowley’s work have been identified, and still fewer are signed. A pair of paintings of Colonel and Mrs. Richard Juliand is inscribed in a manner similar to that on the present work; it has been suggested that this, indeed, may be the artist’s signature.

|Ancestors and descendants of these individuals have not been determined. There was an Erastus Rowley, son of the Revolutionary hero, Aaron, who was married to Eunice Cone in 1799. They lived in Berkshire County, MA. Erastus had a younger brother named Reuben, born in 1776. This couple had apparently only been married a month when she passed away.|
