Recently acquired two oil paintings at auction with their provenance being Chesapeake Bay Maryland. My first thought was kinda looks like Alexander Hamilton and after some research I saw that there are many similarities, the nose right down to the bump on the upper part, eye color, reddish brown eyebrows and hair, same receding hairline as well as the clothing of the time. The craquelure is consistent throughout the paintings with some areas a bit heavier than others. Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton features, hair color and eyes are also similar. I know it’s a reach but just going with my hunch. I would appreciate any help in dating these two pieces as I’m stumped as to what kind panel was used here, appears to be a wood panel with a thin canvas attached or maybe multiple pieces of parchment stacked, just don’t know, I would appreciate any help with this. Frame 24.5” X 27.75” paintings 19.5” X 23” Thanks!
