Wearing two rings, a bracelet, earrings, a gold necklace, and a black collar brooch, this unidentified young girl probably was from the Bangor area. Her jewelry, dress, and surroundings – likely the painter's invention – all give her an air of sophistication and prosperity.
Painter Jeremiah Pearson Hardy (1800-1887) worked primarily in Bangor, where he moved in 1826.
