Catherine Brass Yates Wikipedia
The painting shows Catherine Brass Yates, the wife of Richard Yates, a New York merchant; it was painted in oil on canvas in 1793–94. Stuart painted a portrait of Richard in the same period. Timothy Cahill, the editor of Art Conservator magazine considers that the Portrait of Mrs Richard Yates is "regarded as among the finest American portraits ever made".
The painting was acquired in 1940 by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. The gallery consider that Stuart's painting is "one of his most compelling and unified efforts at conveying character", and "one of America's most famous paintings, both as an artistic masterpiece and as a visual symbol of the early republic's rectitude".
