COLONIAL PORTRAIT: Isaac Stoutenburgh
Printed August 15, 2011
STFA Annual Newsletter
by Lanaii Kline
I came across a picture of an oil portrait of Isaac Stoutenburgh (1738-1799) painted in the latter part of the 18th century. He was Jacobus Stoutenburgh’s first cousin once removed and the grandson of Pieter Stoutenburgh’s son, Isaac.
The painting is not signed and the artist is not known. Isaac is standing and is wearing a brown coat and a powered wig.
Isaac was very prominent in New York City during the American Revolution as a colonel and later as a Commissioner of Forfeiture for the Southern District.
He was a member of the New York Senate from 1780 to 1787 representing Southern District (New York City area).
On June 12, 2011, this portrait of Isaac Stoutenburgh was an item (lot 661) at an auction in Camp Hill, PA.
