Frederick W. Mayhew : “Hulda Martin in Her 55th Year” (1826)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

Hulda Martin was originally from Rehoboth, Massachusetts, in the southeastern part of the state. The portraitist, possibly Massachusetts artist Frederick Mayhew, emphasized her gentility by posing the fifty-five-year-old matron with a book. Details of Hulda’s lace, her modest jewelry, and an ornately painted chair enliven this otherwise sober portrait.
