My favorite art

The work that firmly establishes John Singleton Copley as America's first prominent fine artist.  Note the realistic rendering of fabrics, reflection from the wood, the detail of the gold chain, and overall aesthetic of a non-traditional pose and subject.  Art in 18th-century America was primarily focused on portraiture, which mostly the wealthy could afford.  This masterpiece is a modest departure from convention and marks one of the earliest developments in American art.
