Portrait of Mrs. Reid in the Character of a Sultana
ROBERT EDGE PINE (1730–1788)
An admired British portraitist, Pine moved to America after his sympathies for the American Revolution offended his patrons. In this painting, he depicts the actress Mrs. Reid playing the exotic role of a Sultan’s wife in the company of her turbaned African servant. The painting once belonged to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
