About

This is a signed military appointment by Andrew Jackson. Andrew Jackson was the seventh president of the United States and a hero of the war of 1812. The appointment is dated June 18, 1831 and countersigned by Levi Woodbury, the Secretary of the Navy. Framed below the military appointment is an original, pencil-signed Jacques Reich etched portrait of Andrew Jackson. Reich completed the portrait in 1903. Reich was Hungarian-born portrait etcher, active mainly in the United States. After studying at the National Academy of Design in New York and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, Reich established a studio in New York City in 1885. Working on private commissions and portrait designs for Appelton’s Cyclopaedia of American Biography and Scribner’s Cylodaedia of Painters and Paintings, Reich honed his portraiture technique and skill. In the early 1890s, Reich began working on copper plates, etching a series of 14 portraits of American and English artists, writers, and poets. Reich completed a series of etched portraits titled “Famous Americans”, which number 25 subjects, and include Hamilton, Franklin, Carnegie, Curtis, Roosevelt, Washington, Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln. CONDITION: Etching is in very good condition. Appointment has original paper seal still intact. Signatures are bold and still legible. Original fold lines visible. The appointment and etching are archivally framed in a custom-built black wooden and gold frame. Framed Size: 46.5" H x 27" W x 1.5" D.
