Peale Museum - Garrigues silhouettes






This large group of silhouettes was cut at the Peale Museum. Over half, but not all of them have the Peale Museum impressed mark. The single later silhouette is of a later owner of the portraits, Jean Jeffs (possibly Jean Garrigues Jeffs). The Garrigues family resided in Philadelphia. Each of the silhouettes are named and the easiest place to see them in detail, as well as more about the family, is is at Charles Willson Peale Silhouettes of Garrigues & Davis Families circa 1820-1825 810a, 810b
