called Robert Page (b. ca. 1751)

Date: ca. 1755-1758

Robert Page was the son of Mann Page II and Anne Corbin Tayloe Page. He was a younger brother of Mann Page III and Elizabeth Page and half-brother of John Page. The portrait descended in the Page family. The life dates of the Page children are difficult to confirm. It is possible that this portrait is a different child. The portrait is also overpainted.

The portrait represents a young child wearing a loose fitting gown. They have their right arm around a lamb and their left hand holds a basket filled with flowers. They are inside of a painted oval frame.
