Sturtevant Hamblin (American, 1817-1884)

Portrait of Asa Jewett, 1848

oil on canvas

inscribed Painted by S. J. Hamblin / E. Boston / Aug. 1848 on verso

sight: 26 1/2 x 21 3/8 inches.

A hand-written letter from a descendant of the sitter, dated 1978, accompanies the painting. In it, she quotes excerpts from the 1976 Bicentennial Book on Milton, New Hampshire, providing details about her ancestor, Asa Jewett.

Paul Jewett, Asa's father, was among the first settlers of Milton, New Hampshire, formerly known as Milton Mills. The town featured a crude woolen mill, which Asa, his father and brothers Gilman and Nathaniel later transformed into a lathe and turning mill. Gilman became the first town clerk in 1800, before the town was incorporated in 1802. Asa and his wife Mary Ann Rochards Jewett, who hailed from Exeter, NH, lived on the town's main street, just north of Upper Square. Their daughter, Alberta Jewett Cutts, had a son named Carlton Jewett Hargraves. His daughter, Juanita, wrote the accompanying letter.

The lot also includes an Atlas of Strafford County, New Hampshire, where Milton is located.

Attributed to George Peter Alexander Healy (American, 1813-1894)

Judge Jacob Burnet, U.S. Senator

oil on canvas

unsigned

sight: 28 1/4 x 24 inches.

Born in Newark, NJ, in 1770, Jacob Burnet (1770-1853) was the son of noted physician William Burnet, who was better known as George Washington's Surgeon General. He moved to the Ohio Valley and settled in Cincinnati in 1795.

His career started in the state legislature with two successive terms in 1814 and 1815. In 1821, he was appointed to the Ohio Supreme Court to replace a recently deceased judge. He was eventually elected to serve a full seven-year term. In 1828, he was elected to the United States Senate to replace William Henry Harrison, who had recently become the ambassador to Colombia. His term expired in 1831. 

Burnet was an important figure in the political and cultural landscape of Cincinnati and served as president of the Historical and Philosophical Society of Ohio in the late 1830s-early 1840s. He was also a shareholder in many regional companies and developed an important portfolio of investments throughout his life. 

Throughout his life and political career, Burnet was known as a staunch Federalist, and supported the presidential campaign of Henry Clay in 1824. He was also an advocate of the movement to send freed Blacks to Africa and was an officer of the Cincinnati Colonization Society. He, for instance, opposed the publication of the abolitionist newspaper The Philanthropist.

Judge Jacob Burnet died in 1853.

Provenance and previous exhibition history:

This portrait is said to have descended in the family from the sitter himself to his great-grandson Jacob Wendell Burnet. The painting was donated to the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution by Mrs. Katherine Birkbile Burnet, wife of Mr. Jacob Wendell Burnet, in memory of her late husband, in 1994. 

Marie DeMare's catalogue G.P.A Healy: American Artist references an 1862 exhibit in Chicago featuring ten portraits by the artist, including one of Judge Burnet. It is speculated that this portrait was indeed displayed in the exhibit. The work is characteristic of Healy's portraiture style, and a sharp rendition of the sitter's personality and appearance, "swarthy, slender, a bit above average height, and most notable for piercing black eyes with which he was expert at intimidating wayward witnesses." (The Princetonians, 1791-1794, A Biographical Dictionary, J. Jefferson Looney and Ruth L. Woodward).
