Portrait of Annetje Kool 1740

Portrait of Annetje Kool, attributed to Peter Vanderlyn (1687 - 1778)
Ulster County N.Y. Circa 1740
Oil on Canvas 30-5/8 x 25-1/4 inches, with original painted frame
Jane Katcher Collection of Americana

We believe that this house was built by Cornelis Kool, and this painting may be his granddaughter Annetje Kool who married Mathew Newkirk in the Dutch Reformed Church of Kingston, NY, in 1740. Her wedding ring is prominent on her left hand and in her right hand she holds a silver box marked "A.K."
