Artwork description by The Metropolitan Museum of Art website (© Copyright - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art -

In this double portrait, Cadwallader Colden, who was a physician, botanist, and physicist, is shown with his arm around his grandson. Colden held strong views on the education of his grandchildren and he often tutored Warren. For the realistic facial expressions, the successful ease of the poses, and the rich color, Pratt was indebted to the art of Copley, who visited New York in 1771. Pratt also painted a standing full-length portrait of Colden, which can be seen at the New-York Historical Society.
