Martin Tidd’s Portrait

Portrait of Martin Tidd
This is one of my great-great-great-great-great-great paternal grandfathers, Martin Tidd. This portrait, probably painted in the 1820s, currently hangs in the Western Reserve Historical Society Museum in Cleveland. According to the museum, it is in the Empire style and dates from 1830 to 1840. The artist used oil paint and gilt gesso on wood.
