Portrait of Captain Isaac Hull
This oil on panel portrait of Captain Isaac Hull was completed by the renowned American portrait artist, Gilbert Stuart (1755-1828), in Boston, Massachusetts in 1807. By this time Hull had been promoted to captain, having already served aboard USS Constitution as lieutenant during the Quasi-War with France. Hull would not assume command of USS Constitution until 1810. The portrait exhibits Stuart’s naturalistic characteristics, including ruddy cheeks and a confident gaze.
