Portrait of a Child in a blue dress. Attributed to William Matthew Prior. New England, circa 1835. Inspected under UV light. See images under UV light. Also, areas of arms and legs and face appear to have some semi-transparent over-paint in an effort to minimize paint craquelure. These areas do not fluoresce. These areas can probably be minimized. Painting is an old relining. Framed size H 31-1/2" W 26" Canvas size H 27-1/8" W 22".
