Lot Essay

Among the best known and recognized American 19th century portrait miniaturists, Nathaniel Rogers worked first in Connecticut and then principally in New York City between 1811 and 1839. Rogers was a member of the American Academy, where other miniaturists included in The Chieffo Collection such as Arementa Vail exhibited, and, like Henry Inman, Rogers was instrumental as a founding member of the National Academy of Design.
