    The portrait of Tamer, the freed slave, is the best of this otherwise ordinary lot, she radiates a quiet pride and confidence, which he’s captured well. many thanks.

    “Ordinary lots” & old fashioned genre paintings carry a wealth of information on the material & social culture of America in the 19th century. Your postings are informative & often offer obsure artists for us to take a look at. Thank you for your hard work.

    This is a relatively underrated but very proficient American artist; the “ordinary lot” comment is unfair. SAMount was overshadowed by his much more famous brother William and by painters of the Hudson River School but he was a brilliant portraitist with exquisite color sense and an excellent eye for detail. Hopefully, more people will recognize the subtle skill of his work.
