    The owner museum says this is a c. 1795-1799 painting. Though the artist married twice (as the nga.gov artist info URL I point to in my comment above states), his Wikipedia page currently only has the name of his first wife, who died before he remarried in 1795 (a genealogy website says 1796). There are discrepancies about the first wife’s lifespan dates as well. Anyway, I don’t know which wife was depicted. I’m sure you only meant what you said in humor; but, this might have been painted in loving tribute to his first wife after she passed.

    I don’t see it. I mean I literally don’t see it. Like finnygirl, and I’m sure everyone else, though they didn’t say anything, your image URL is wrong. Maybe you don’t bother reading your comment after posting it; but, the italicized letters are a dead give-away that it got messed up because the comment translator mistook an underscore (“_”) character to be the start of something meant to be in italics, and dropped the “_” from the URL, making it wrong.
