[Philadelphia? nd]. Engraved portrait, 3-7/8" x 4-7/8", on a leaf 7" x 10". Very Good.
Welch [1814-1874] made his engraving from a portrait painted in 1834 by Samuel Stillman Osgood. Welch was born in Charleston, studied in Philadelphia, and worked there professionally until about 1861, when he moved to Paris. The Philadelphia directories of 1841-1845 list him as a portrait painter. This offering was probably a frontispiece to one of the Crockett biographies.
I Stauffer 286 for Welch's biography. Item #32973
