Ramage studied art in the Dublin Society’s Drawing School, he lived briefly in London before moving to Halifax in 1772 and Boston in 1775 where he established himself as a miniaturist and gold smith. By 1776 he was seeking commissions in New York City where he became the city’s leading miniaturist. Amongst his distinguished sitters were George Washington; George Clinton, governor of New York and member of the Van Rennsselaer family.
The sitter is wearing a similar waistcoat to that worn by William Few, a statesman and banker (1748-1828) who had his portrait taken by Ramage circa 1787
