Art may be previewed on the auction website at WWW.MONTSERRAT.EDU/AUCTION26. American School, 18th-century, portrait of Abigail Rose, North Branford, Connecticut, 1786, at the age of 14, auctioned for $1.27 million on November 5, 2011 I knew the portrait of Abigail Rose had potential, as it is the finest early American folk portrait offered here at Skinner in forty years. There were a couple of quiet predictions in the trade that the picture might well bring a million dollars, and we were delighted that it brought a record-setting price. The asymmetrical composition is unique for the time period. Well- preserved, in original condition, and not seen publicly since the 1930s, the portrait descended through the family of the sitter. —Stephen Fletcher, executive vice president and director of American Furniture and Decorative Arts Bath the Showcase a Peabody Supply Company
