Catherine Brass Yates
Mrs. Richard Yates, Catherine,is simply known as the wife of a NY businessman. I read also that she is a Philadelphia socialite. Maybe she is both. The original painting is by Gilbert Stuart, complete in 1794, and is considered on of the finest American portraits of its time. This one, complete in 2013 by me, is also one of the finest American portraits of its time, lol. Yeah, I said that. Sold, duh.
