Duplessis-Valade/Portrait of Benjamin Franklin
Portrait of Franklin, in three-quarter right profile, dressed in a coat with fur collar. Franklin signature reproduced below portrait.
Engraving by R. W. Dodson, claimed to be from a painting by J. B. Longacre. More likely Longacre painting is after a ca. 1785 oil painting, probably by French portrait painter Jean Valade (1709-1787), which is after a 1778 painting by Joseph Siffred Duplessis (1751-1831).
