Mary Kennon was the daughter of Richard Kennon and Elizabeth Worsham. She married John Bolling. It looks like it has been overpainted. It does not look like a known artist’s work from the region. It descended in the family with other Bolling portraits. It is possible that this is a copy of an original portrait, which would explain stylistic inconsistencies.
Dimensions: 28 x 22 in. (71.12 x 55.88 cm.)
An older woman appears in a painted oval frame. She wears a black dress with three white bows on her bodice. She wears a kerchief over her shoulders, a pearl necklace, and a two-layer white veil. It is smaller than standed three-quarter canvases.
