19th Century Watercolor on paper bust length portrait of Andrew Jackson (1767-1845), after the 1819 painting by New York artist John Vanderlyn (1775-1852) or after later engravings based on the Vanderlyn portrait. Jackson is depicted in his military uniform, in three quarter view. Partially illegible handwritten Northern European pencil inscription below the image. Old label affixed en verso reads: "Watercolor Portrait of Andrew Jackson/ seventh president of the U.S.A./ Variation of the well-known portrait John Vanderlyn painted once of the president in Washington. Engravings of this portrait are seen in the Austrian Imperial Fideicommiss Library. This watercolor portrait was sold after the death of clergyman missioner Count Coudenhove, who had a nice art gallery." Additional Arthur Ackermann & Son, Inc., New York label affixed en verso. Housed and matted in a giltwood frame under glass. Sight: 10 1/2" H x 7 1/4" W. Framed: 16 1/2" H x 13 1/4" W. Note: Count Coudenhove refers to a member of the noble Austrian Coudenhove family. Count Ludwig von Coudenhove (1819-1881) spent several years as a missionary in Philadelphia after being ordained in 1842. It is likely that this painting comes from Ludwig's collection and that he is the "clergyman missionary" referred to in the inscription. (Source: "From Cathedral Canons to Priests: The Coudenhoves and the 'Catholic Revival'" in "Nobles And Nation In Central Europe: Free Imperial Knights In The Age Of Revolution, 1750-1850" by William D. Godsey, Jr, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 2004.)


Toning to paper, one stain on left side of face, approximately 1", one small tear in above right shoulder, 1/4", some slight creases.
