"Two Children", 1843, by Jefferson Gauntt (American, 1805-1864). Although we do not know the names of the sister and brother in this portrait, we do know (from an inscription on the back of the painting) that Gauntt painted them in Brooklyn, New York. Although sister and brother wear similar dresses, there are differences: the girl's pantaloons have more lace than her brother's, and his costume is decorated with buttons, a type of ornamentation more characteristically male.
