Description: Sarah Solis Carvalho (Painting).

Solomon Nunes Carvalho, artist, daguerreotypist and portrait painter, was a native of Charleston, South Carolina. He later resided variously in Barbados, Philadelphia, Baltimore and finally New York. Carvalho helped establish a Sephardic congregation, Beit Israel, in Baltimore.
This is a portrait of his wife Sarah Miriam Solis (1824-1894). The pair were married in 1845 by the groom’s friend, Reverend Isaac Leeser (1806-1868), hazzan of Congregation K.K. Mikveh Israel in Philadelphia. Sarah Carvalho was founder and President of the Baltimore Hebrew Sunday School Association.
Carvalho’s sources for the composition (the rich drapery swag to the sitter’s left, and the non-specific view through the window to her right) and tonality of this portrait lie ultimately in eighteenth century European painting, filtered through such American painters as Gilbert Stuart and Thomas Sully, with a touch of Victorian sentimentality. It is interesting to note that Carvalho’s experience with photographic portraits did not influence this portrait of his wife.
