This portrait of the engraver and animal-painter James Ward (1769-1859) was painted while Gilbert Stuart , a Rhode Island native, was working in the studio of Benjamin West in London. Stuart first met Ward when he was twelve and an errand boy for the artists and has posed him in mid-17th century dress with a poodle.
